A Georgia jury has awarded the family of a 4-old-boy killed, when their
Jeep Grand Cherokee exploded into flames after being rear ended, a$150
million verdict. It has also been noted the jury told Chyrsler, the manufacturer
of Jeeps, they must pay the full amount. The verdict came when the jurors
ruled that Chrylser acted with reckless disreard for human life.
The issue is that Jeeps were manufactured with gas tanks mounted behind
the rear axle making them susceptible to ignite into flames when punctured
or hit from behind. Federal documents report that at least 75 people have
died in crash fires becuase of the rear mounted gas tanks.
