GM Faulty Ignitions Lead to More Crashes

GM(CNN) — There are reports of more crashes being linked to faulty ignitions in GM vehicles. A spokesman said the number of frontal impact crashes now tied to the problems is up to 47. It had been 32.

GM said the number of deaths related to the problems remains at 13, but officials with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have said they believe that number is likely higher. GM has recalled 2.6 million cars worldwide due to the ignition switch.

The justice department is considering whether to bring criminal charges against the automaker for how it handled the recall.
