Lawsuits blame Range Rover gear shifter for deadly rollaway

Shadi Farhat, 41, was getting out of her 2017 Range Rover SUV when it started rolling, pulling her underneath. The Los Angeles mother of two made it to her feet before collapsing. She died just days later.

“I lost the love of my life. I lost my best friend,” her husband, Michael Farhat, told CBS News.

He is now raising their daughters alone. “Every day is a struggle,” he said. “It’s a hole that’s never going to be filled inside you.”

In his lawsuit against Jaguar Land Rover, Farhat blames what he calls the “defective gear selector” in their Range Rover, which uses a dial instead of a stick to change gears.
