Lexus GX 460 SUV Rollover Risk

Consumer Reports magazine has taken the rare step of giving the Toyota Lexus GX 460 a "Don't Buy" warning due to the risk of SUV rollover. The magazine says that while testing the performance of the luxury SUV, the vehicle slid sideways before the electronic stability control system kicked in on unusual turns. If the vehicle were to hit the curb or the side of the road, it might flip.

The magazine told the roughly 5000 owners of the Lexus to approach exit ramps with caution and to demand a fix from Toyota. Toyota says it is concerned with the Consumer Reports rating, but needs to duplicate the magazine's tests before their engineers can decide if a fix is needed.

The handling test was done on a test track. The driver in the test approaches a turn quickly and releases the accelerator pedal as a driver might do in a real-world situation. This causes the rear wheels to slide. Consumer Reports has tested 95 SUV models, and none of them has slipped as far as the Lexus.

What may be most disconcerting is that the Lexus GX 460, which costs around $52,000, met or exceeded federal government testing requirements.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an SUV rollover, please contact an experienced personal injury attorney in your area.

Denver Bus Accident Kills Two

A Regional Transportation District bus ran a red light and hit two vehicles on Saturday, April 3, in Denver, killing two people and injuring a dozen others. According to reports, the bus ran the red light, T-boned a 2007 Volkswagen Rabbit and then hit a 1996 Ford truck. The truck was then pushed across the road and into a pole in front of a 7-11 convenience store.

Both the driver and passenger of the Rabbit were killed in the bus accident. The driver of the Ford truck was able to crawl out of a broken window. He is listed in serious condition. The rest of the injured were on the bus. This includes the bus driver.

The driver of the bus is a private contract worker who works for another company. This company has had three reported incidents in the last four years in which company drivers have run red lights and hit vehicles. Colorado law mandates that RTD use private companies to drive a fraction of their 1000 buses. The record for this particular company was listed as "average" with 1.4 preventable accidents per 100,000 miles.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident, please contact the Accident Lawyers Network to find an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area.
