Probe into Monorail Death extends past one year

In just a few days Disney World’s tragic monorail accident that killed a cast member will have its one year anniversary. So too will the investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board into the crash. That’s not unusual for an accident investigation. Now we’re hearing that the report could be even longer in coming, perhaps as long as two years.

Disney World transportation has already made a number of corrective measures to the monorail system that should prevent similar accidents under the same circumstances. But the NTSB’s study is expected to reveal potential more systematic problems monorail operations.

It’s good that they want to get it right, but waiting much longer just means a longer time before Disney has an opportunity to take further corrective action.
