Death Numbers for GM Ignition Flaw Released


At least 100 deaths are connected to a flawed ignition switch on G-M cars. The attorney overseeing a compensation fund for victims unveiled the new death toll Monday. Over three dozen other fatal accidents are still being investigated, as well as hundreds of crashes where people were injured. The flawed ignition switch could make the cars shut off while being driven. That could lead to airbags and anti-lock brakes not working. G-M admitted that it erred in delaying a recall on the impacted cars until about a decade after the glitch was discovered. G-M’s compensation fund is now estimated to be costing the company $150 million.
