Consumer Reports names pair to review child seat tests
Brian O'Neill and Dr. Kennerly H. Digges will review the test results to see what, if anything, was done improperly. O'Neill is a former president of the IIHS, while Digges was once the director of Vehicle Safety and Biomechanics at the NHTSA National Crash Analysis Center of George Washington University.
Consumers Union president Jim Guest said on CR's Web site, "Dr. Digges and Mr. O'Neill are among the nation's most respected experts on car safety issues. We are confident that they will conduct a thorough review of this incident and determine what went wrong."
There's no mention of any plans for retesting the seats, but one would assume if the initial tests were found to be more stressing than intended, the group would re-run the evaluations.
