    interesting that they are awaiting blood test results in addition to the autopsy report on the woman who was killed, not the driver who killed her.

    Safety Of Vehicle Under Scrutiny After Pregnant Woman Dies In Freeway Explosion

    November 12, 2014 8:19 PM

    DETROIT (WWJ) — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says there were 58 deaths involving Jeep Libertys from the 2002 through 2007 models years where the vehicle caught fire in a rear-impact crash.

    Chrysler has issued a recall — but denies a defect. The issue with the Jeeps in question was fuel tank leaks and fires after a rear-end collision, with the gas tank being located behind the rear axle...

    Berman: Rush hour accident shatters a family's hopes

    Laura Berman, The Detroit News 10:39 a.m. EST November 13, 2014

    Kayla White was never late to work.

    Never.

    When she didn't show up for her hostess job at Andiamo in Bloomfield Hills at 5 p.m. Tuesday, the general manager, Florina Boyle, worried. When she realized Kayla's cellphone was off, "I knew," said Boyle, who worked with Kayla for eight years, watching her grow from a teenager to a "lovely young woman, " and become a close friend.

    Boyle called Kayla's father, Russ White, who immediately drove the route his daughter would have, expecting to find her by the side of the road. As he turned off Interstate 696 toward Telegraph, he saw flashing red lights and wreckage. "They wouldn't let me near the car," he said Wednesday afternoon...

    I would hope that his blood alcohol level was tested. Although it doesn't sound as if he was drunk. But the driver who hits the car from behind is usually the one at fault. So he could face criminal charges even if he was not drunk.
    It's a horrible tragedy. People should be paying attention while driving.

    The distracted driving also could be due to an early dementia - my mom plowed into the back of a police car a few miles north of there and it was actually the first indicator that something was going on with her. Her ability to pay attention to multiple things while driving was the main reason for this crash, and I thanked God the police officer wasn't hurt.

    That doesn't absolve Chrysler of their responsibility, especially seeing that Kayla had tried to get her vehicle repaired just before this happened. I had a car that had been recalled a few years before (Chevy) and I found the dealership very reluctant to repair the vehicle. It took 4 separate visits by me before they figured out I wasn't going away and they ordered the kit or part to fix my car. I really think they hope people will just give up or the car is traded or sold so they never have to fix it.
