law enforcement agencies are required to notify the department of transportation when a crash involving a motor carrier involves fatalities or requires vehicles to be towed from the scene. we've found 15 major collision involving fedex ground trucks are missing from the carrier's safety record. the d.o.t. tells us law enforcement never recorded the crashes, or recorded the wrong d.o.t. number. the federal government relies on it to evaluate the safety of a motor carrier. that means you may not get the full picture when looking at a company's safety record. for more details on the accidents we found missing from the fedex ground safety record, go to nbcbayarea.com and click on investigations. >> if you have a tip for elise or anyone in the investigative unit, give us a call or send an
