NTSB: Better Communication Might Have Prevented Deadly Kalamazoo Bicycle Crash

More details were revealed Wednesday tied to the deaths of a group of bicyclists last year in Kalamazoo.

The National Transportation Safety Board says better communication between police agencies might have stopped the incident from happening.

A pickup truck driver hit the pack of cyclists last June.

Charles Pickett Jr. is charged with murder and driving while under the influence of drugs.

The NTSB says 22 minutes passed between the first 911 call about an erratic driver and the crash.

The board says Pickett might have been intercepted by an officer if dispatchers for three police agencies had shared more information among themselves about three 911 calls.
