Family Files Wrongful-Death Suit After Fiery Crash In 2015

A woman is speaking out more than a year after her husband was killed in a fiery crash on an Ontario highway.  On Jan. 22, 2015, Rosalio Munoz-Reyes was inside a model year 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee when it was rear-ended on the thoroughfare, causing the gas tank to catch fire. Within seconds, the Jeep burst into flames. Rosalio and a co-worker were trapped inside and were burned to death.

In June of 2013, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration asked Chrysler to recall earlier model years, specifically Grand Cherokees built between 1993 and 1998 due to concerns about gas tanks catching on fire. But there were no recalls for later model years between 1999 and 2004.

Munoz-Reyes’ attorney said, “The company should have been forced to recall all of these vehicles, not just a select group.”
