Tuesday a jury awarded a woman paralyzed in a rollover accident involving her Ford Explorer $122 million in damages. Ford plans to appeal the decision and blamed the driver for trying to avoid a piece of metal in the road. The automaker also said any SUV would've rolled over in a similar circumstance. The Explorer's crash test results from the National Highway Safety Administration gets top marks in every category besides "rollover resistance" where it gets a mid-level grade. A quick comparison shows almost all similar sized & priced SUVs have identical grades when it comes to rollover.
