Drivers' guilty pleas overturned following recall

Many Oklahoma drivers may have been affected by the February 2014 General Motors recall due to a defective ignition switch. The company recalled 2.6 million cars although it was aware of the fault for about a decade prior to the recall. In that time, several people who were driving the faulty vehicles were convicted of charges like negligent homicide if they were involved in fatal accidents. When they reported that the cars had suddenly sped up or shut off on their own, their accounts were dismissed.

Oklahoma residents who have been involved in a car accident may not be immediately aware that they have been injured, especially when the injuries received are not readily visible.
