NTSB Makes Investigation into Walt Disney World Monorail Crash Public

The National Transportation Safety Board has released the full docket for their investigation on the collision between Monorail Pink and Monorail Purple at Walt Disney World on July 5, 2009 which resulted in the death of monorail operator Austin Wuennenberg. The docket, which can be found here, consists of dozens of documents and several hundred pages including interviews, charts, maintenance records, inspection reports and more. Amongst the interviews is one with the operator of the other train involved in the crash, Alan Rubino, who recounts operating Monorail Pink in reverse at approximately 13mph when it collided with Monorail Purple.

This represents the first time in its history that the NTSB has gotten involved in a private transportation system.
