USA:Police officer, Ford settle

AUTO INDUSTRY REPORT: Police officer, Ford settle

Detroit Free Press

Jason Schechterle, a Phoenix police officer severely burned in March 2001 when his patrol car exploded, reached a settlement agreement with Ford Motor Co., a company spokeswoman said. The case had been set for trial June 8.

Schechterle was badly injured when a speeding taxi struck his police cruiser. He suffered disfiguring burns to his hands and face.

He filed a product liability suit in February 2003 against Ford, contending that the design used in the Crown Victoria Police Interceptor -- placing the fuel tank behind the rear axle -- was defective.

Ford spokeswoman Kathleen Vokes declined to discuss details of the settlement.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
