After eight members of a Florida church were killed in a tragic passenger van accident last week, transportation officials are investigating the safety of the van the victims were riding in. The driver of the van missed an unlit T-intersection, driving the van into a canal. Now, investigators are looking into both the intersection, where accidents have happened in the past, and the safety of the van model.
