The family of 43 yr-old Polly Gonzalez, who was killed in a crash near Death Valley in 2005, is suing Ford Motor Co. alleging the SUV she was driving was unsafe.
Polly, an anchor at KLSV-8 in Las Vegas from 1994 to 2005, was returning from California when her Ford Explorer rolled over. Her two young daughters were injured but survived the crash.
According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, the suit claims the Ford Explorer’s roof wasn’t strong enough to withstand a rollover accident and that Polly’s seatbelt didn’t work. The lawsuit is set to start in February.
