NTSB Pins Blame on PG&E, Regulators for San Bruno Explosion

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

Federal investigators are pinning blame for last year's deadly gas explosion in San Bruno, squarely on PG&E and on the regulators that oversee it. This morning, the National Transportation Safety Board released its final report on the blast.

The lengthy report attributes the explosion to PG&E's poor quality control and management, as well as weak federal and state oversight that might have prevented the disaster.

It recommends audits of those agencies, new procedures from the utility, and it urges the state to evaluate how the California Public Utilities Commission enforces regulations.
