Beschrijving:
Northeast Flight 120, a Vickers Viscount, arrived near Boston and was cleared to land on runway 04R. During the landing rollout a DC-6, National Airlines Flight 429, was attempting to takeoff from runway 09. Both aircraft collided.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The Board finds this ground collision accident occurred as the result of commencement of takeoff by National 429 without clearance. Contributing factors were the failure of tower personnel to provide adequate surveillance of the active runway and to issue an appropriate warning message to the pilot of National 429 alerting him to the impending traffic confliction."
