The National Transportation Safety Board denied a group’s petition to reopen the investigation into what caused the fatal TWA Flight 800 crash in 1996. Terrorism was initially suspected, and a number of witnesses on shore came forward with accounts of seeing a flare, rocket or “streak of light” headed toward the plane prior to the explosion. But after a four-year investigation, the NTSB determined that a fuel tank explosion — sparked by a short circuit in the wiring — caused the crash.
