The Jeep "Recall" — If Chrysler Had a Heart…
July 9, 2013
Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:
Please watch this video. A crash victim gives a first hand description of some of the consequences of serious burn injuries suffered in a crash. http://www.wusa9.com/news/article/264655/37/Jeep-Crash-Survivors-Push-NHTSA-For-More-Action
When Joan Claybrook was NHTSA Administrator, I had a small part in studies on the consequences of crashes on children and families. These studies are now on my web site at www.CareForCrashVictims.com under “Effects on Families”.
The NHTSA Report attached (p. 70) shows that each year there are about 1,000 fatal crashes involving fire and about 3,000 injury crashes involving fire.
If Chrysler had a heart and NHTSA had the courage of a Joan Claybrook….
We can and must do better protecting motorists from deaths and injuries.
