CHESTERFIELD - (AP) - The National Transportation Safety Board is planning a meeting to determine the probable cause of a fatal 2012 school bus crash in New Jersey.

The accident in Chesterfield killed 11-year-old Isabelle Tezsla and seriously injured both her triplet sisters and three other students.

Authorities say a dump truck collided with the back of the bus and rammed it into a pole at an intersection.

The NTSB is also gathering information about a similar fatal bus crash in March 2012 in Port St. Lucie, Fla., and may release recommendations aimed at improving school bus safety nationwide.

The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday in Washington.
