A Texas jury found Ford at fault for the death of two women in a roll-over crash. In the the case Ford was blamed for not using laminated side glass in the 2000 Ford Explorer the girls were riding in. The girl's attorney said that thicker glass, which isn't mandated by government regulations, would have prevented the UNBELTED occupants from being ejected from the truck when it crashed. This lawsuit asks the question, "Why have federal standards if you can be sued because you didn't go above and beyond regulations?' The death of young people in any accident is tragic, but to look for compensation this way seems a little overboard. Lesson learned: Wear seatbelts.
