NHTSA Won’t Launch Investigation Over Steering Sensor In GM Vehicles

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will not launch an investigation after a lawsuit was filed in Georgia over allegedly defective steering sensors in GM vehicles.

According to Reuters, regulators had taken interest in a lawsuit filed against GM over a fatal crash involving a 42-year old woman who lost control of her 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer, rolling it into a ditch. The suit, filed in Georgia in 2016, alleges the crash was caused by a faulty steering sensor in GM vehicles that the automaker did not warn drivers about, despite the fact it had previous knowledge of problems with it.
