GM cleared in second verdict over crash blamed on ignition switch

DETROIT, August 26, 2016

A Texas jury on Thursday said a General Motors Co ignition switch was not to blame for a fatal 2011 crash, according to a statement from the company.

The verdict in Harris County, Texas, is the second in favour of GM this year in a lawsuit over a recalled ignition switch that has been linked to nearly 400 injuries and deaths. Plaintiff Zachary Stevens claimed a defect in the switch caused his 2007 Saturn Sky to crash into another vehicle, killing the other driver, while GM said his driving was at fault. - Reuters
