Fiat Ordered To Pay $150 Million

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles was ordered to pay $150 million to the family of a four year old boy, Remington Walden. The 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee he was in was struck from behind, and caught fire. About seventy-five people have died in the Jeep Grand Cherokee on ignition of the fuel tank in such a dangerous location.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles plans to appeal.

The jury held the company 99% responsible for the accident.

The driver who struck the Jeep was sentenced to 8 years in prison.
