In my adopted home state of Illinois a jury found Ford Motor Co. not responsible for explosions in its Crown Victoria police cruisers. This is the first of more than a dozen similar class action suits against Ford claiming the Crown Vic's gas tank is placed in a dangerous position behind the rear axle, making it easier for the car's to explode in rear end collisions. A dozen fatalities have taken place across the country due to Crown Vic explosions but the jury took just two hours to decide Ford was not at fault. One juror said, "You're not going to stop accidents from happening."
