Distracted driver involved in 2014 crash to serve jail term

The distracted driver who caused a fatal Fond du Lac accident in 2014 recently appeared in court to give testimony before beginning her jail term, a report of Fond du Lac Reporter stated on June 25.

Reports said 27-year-old Heather Cleveland will begin her sentence of three years in jail and two years probation after being found liable for the 2014 accident that killed Linda Trotter. According to a court hearing last March, Cleveland was sending a text message while behind the wheel on State 23 when she rear-ended a truck that was stopped at a traffic light. The collision sent the truck to the other side of the road and in front of Trotter’s vehicle. Trotter, 63, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Reports revealed Cleveland made no attempt to avoid the crash and was speeding when she crashed. After she testified, Cleveland expressed to Trotter’s family how she was affected by the incident.

Millions of GM trucks with potentially defective seatbelts recalled

A seat belt problem prompted American automaker giant, General Motors (GM), to issue a voluntary recall to approximately 1.04 million vehicles in the U.S. and in other countries, a report of CNBC stated on April 15.

Reports revealed that the seat belts in the 2014 and 2015 models of GMC Sierra 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado may detach if the flexible steel cable is worn through with everyday use. GM explained that they discovered the problem through data gathered from warranty claims. Incidents of accidents or injuries were not reported before GM issued the recall. A total of 895,232 of the affected vehicles reportedly were in the U.S. and an estimated 142,000 vehicles were sold in other countries. GM is expected to address the issue by enhancing or replacing the tensioner assembly of the recalled pickup trucks.
