Safety Lawsuit Focuses On Guardrail Defects

A lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court in Marshall, Texas, alleges that thousands of highway guardrail end caps are defectively designed  with the result that when a vehicle runs off the road and collides with the end of the guardrail instead of cushioning the impact the guardrail spears the vehicle.  At issue is the Trinity Industries’ ET-Plus guardrail manufactured by a division of Dallas-based manufacturer Trinity Industries .   The Center for Auto Safety recently filed a motion requesting federal judge Rodney Gilstrap to unseal many of the documents in order to determine whether a recall of the  guardrails was necessary.
