NTSB Narrative Summary Released at Completion of Accident
After landing, the pilot of the Cessna 172R was instructed by air traffic control to expedite his crossing of a parallel runway, and to pull-up along the left side of a stopped Boeing 767-300. The Boeing subsequently continued its taxi, and made a right turn. During the turn, the Cessna was flipped onto its left wing, due to the Boeing's jet blast. The Cessna sustained substantial damage to the left wing spar.
NTSB Probable Cause Narrative
The air traffic controller's improper taxi clearance.
