How to use examine in a sentence?

  1. Dolline Hatchett:

    What this means in real terms is we are missing prevention opportunities, important evidence is being lost that we would normally examine following an accident.

The NTSB wants to ensure safety across the transportation spectrum, and we are unable to do that as long as this shutdown continues.

  2. Greg Hampikian:
