Guard Rail Failures Nationwide Spark Lawsuits – questioning their safety.

Trinity guard rail that has failed safety tests, impaled drivers and severed limbs. ODOT evaluating the situation.

A $175 Million dollar lawsuit has been filed in federal court in Texas against Trinity Highway Products for allegedly inappropriately changing the design of their company’s common guard rail “heads,” a change which now causes them to fail. Trinity’s guard rail heads were originally designed to collapse when hit, while hanging onto the car so it doesn’t go back into traffic.

There are thought to be 900 such guard rail “headers” along Oregon Highways.

ODOT says they’re going by what the Federal Highway Administration is saying – they’re not approving any new Trinity product until they re-test them and verify they works as claimed. Latest crashes show that the header doesn’t collapse – rather, it sends the guard rail straight into the vehicle and kills and maims people inside.

The story is in the Oregon. Click here.
