Air traffic control to blame for near-collision between two passenger jets

We’re getting new details about a scary close call in mid-air between two jets that came dangerously close to one another.

Federal investigators are looking into what caused two 757s full of passengers to nearly collide over Hawaii on April 25th.

Both planes were at their assigned altitudes and could have cost hundreds of lives.

CNN's Rene Marsh is OutFront with what caused the near-miss.
