DOJ starts criminal probe into GM over ignition switches

|By:, SA News Editor

The Department of Justice is reportedly investigating General Motors (GM) over whether the company is criminally liable for its failure to properly disclose the problems with ignition switches that have been linked to the deaths of 13 people and which prompted the firm to recall 1.6M vehicles.

The federal probe adds to investigations in the House, and by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and GM itself.
