UPDATE: The National Transportation Safety Board’s lead investigator into last week’s fatal crash on Interstate 75 near Ooltewah says their preliminary report into the accident should be released in ten days or so, but the full report will take months longer.
Pete Kotowski, the NTSB investigator in charge, says they’re awaiting test results on the blood taken from Benjamin Brewer, the truck driver involved in the nine-vehicle collision just north of exit 11 last Thursday night.
The driver of the truck, Benjamin Scott Brewer, 39, has had various brushes with the law and is wanted for a bench warrant following a charge of possession of an illegally obtained prescription.
