The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) says it will hold a meeting to consider a Special Investigation Report into the probable cause of the Woodmore bus crash.

The NTSB's report will also look into another crash from November 1, 2016 involving a Baltimore City school bus and a transit bus. Six children were killed in the Woodmore bus crash. Combined, 37 people were injured and 12 killed in the two crashes.

The NTSB says by combining the two crashes into one comprehensive report, they will be able to focus on specific areas of concern found in both crashes. The NTSB will then be able to highlight recommendations for school bus safety.

The meeting will be held on May 22 at 9:30 a.m. at the NTSB's boardroom & conference center in Washington.

The NTSB will also start a livestream from their website shortly before the meeting begins.

A jury found Johnthony Walker guilty of all six counts of criminally negligent homicide and 21 other charges in the Woodmore bus crash. His sentencing is scheduled for Tuesday, April 24th.
