AAA Calls For Chesapeake Bay Bridge Safety Review

Posted: Updated:

SANDY POINT, Md. (AP) - AAA Mid-Atlantic is calling for a federal investigation into the safety of barriers on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge after a crash sent a car off the bridge and into the water below last week.
    
In a letter to the National Transportation Safety Board on Monday, the motorclub called on the agency to investigate the crash.
    
In the letter, AAA Mid-Atlantic spokesman Lon Anderson says the crash raises questions about whether the bridge's restraint system failed, whether it met federal specification or if those specifications may not be adequate for this kind of crash.
    
The Maryland Transportation Authority says engineers found no structural damage from this crash at the scene. Authority police and Maryland State Police are investigating the crash and the authority says it welcomes NTSB involvement and insight.
