NATIONWIDE (December 20, 2016) – The NTSB has launched an investigation after numerous reports surfaced about newer model Dodge pickups and SUVs rolling after being parked, according to a local news source.
So far, 25 reports of incidents have been filed where 2013-2016 Ram pickup trucks, and 2014-2016 Dodge Durango SUVs have rolled after being put into park. 9 cases of injuries have been reported as well. The NTSB is investigating 1 million of the vehicles that have the electronic rotary control that is believed to be at fault.
This investigation is different from the April recall by Fiat Chrysler that covered 1.1 million cars and SUVs for a similar problem. In June, Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin was killed by his recalled 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee that rolled down his driveway and pinned him against a fence.
