The National Transportation Safety Board says a ban on all vehicles from New Jersey to the northern tip of Florida is needed to prevent a deadly crash involving a car and a jet ski.
On Saturday, a passenger jet crashed into a parked car and crashed into the back of a jet skipper’s jet ski, killing one person.
The NTSB says the crash was the result of “a driver error” by the driver of the jet ski that “could have resulted in a serious injury or death.”
The NTSBs preliminary findings from its investigation of the crash, which happened on Sunday morning, do not indicate a violation of the Federal Aviation Administration’s airworthiness rules.
The agency says the accident “was not a major accident” but that “it would have been fatal if it had been.”
It’s unclear how many people were injured in the crash.
The crash also happened on a New Jersey road, which has been closed to the public.
A police report says a car driver who crashed into another vehicle near a Walmart parking lot had been cited and was cited for operating without a valid license.
A driver in that car also was cited, according to the police report.
A witness told NBC New York that the driver’s license had been suspended.
