Jury Awards $15 Million in Ford Rollover Case

A federal jury in Tulsa, OK, returned a $15 million compensatory damages verdict against Ford Motor Co. in a suit brought by the parents of a teenager who died when the 1995 Ford Explorer he was driving rolled over in an accident.  The teen driver lost control of the vehicle while he was passing another vehicle in a no passing zone on a curve.  The vehicle came to rest on its roof which collapsed due to inadequate strength, trapping the plaintiff with his neck pushed into his chest, impeding his airway and causing his death.  See the Associated Press story.
