The agency says it found a timing problem with the signal system at the Illinois intersection where the crash happened.
The traffic light near the crossing is supposed to turn green when a train is coming so traffic will move off the tracks, but apparently the light did not turn soon enough.
The NTSB says there wasn't enough time for the driver to move once she saw a signal that the train was coming.
The back of school bus was still on the tracks when it was hit.
Seven students were killed and several other remain hospitalized.

Thanks to a media circus and citizens' support, Mister Twister has won the freedom to feed parking meters.
In Santa Cruz, California it is illegal to put coins in parking meters without consent.
Mister Twister uses tips from his balloon creations and entertainment to feed expired meters before parking officers can write tickets.
Recently Mr. Twister was slapped with a 13-dollar fine for unauthorized meter-feeding.
The city ended up dropping the citation and repealed the ordinance that barred strangers from plugging parking meters.
Even the mayor admitted the law should not be on the books and that it never made much sense.
