AKRON, Ohio (AP) – Toxicology reports in the investigation of an Ohio plane crash that killed nine people indicate no sign of drugs or alcohol was found in the pilots’ systems.

The reports were among more than 1,100 pages of documents shared by the National Transportation Safety Board. Those don’t include analysis or rulings about what happened or why, and the NTSB said it wasn’t commenting Wednesday.
