This case involves a woman who was driving a mid-size SUV. The woman parked the car in her inclined driveway, exited the vehicle, and began to remove bags from the backseat of the car. As she was removing the contents of the backseat, the car allegedly self-shifted from “park” to “reverse.” The car began to drag the woman down the driveway and because she was in the backseat, she could not hit the brakes to stop it. As she attempted to pull the hand-brake, the car picked up speed and collided with another car in the street. Both the woman and the other driver suffered serious injuries. An expert in automotive engineering familiar with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) standards was sought to examine the vehicle and identify why this accident occurred and whether the SUV’s brake-transmission-shift-interlock (BTSI) feature failed.
