10 years after the fatal accident that killed her fiancé, a 31-year-old woman and her fiancé’s mother are suing General Motors for the second time since the crash, according to FOX DFW. Candice Anderson was driving her new Saturn Ion at the time of the crash; the car veered off of the road in Canton, outside of Dallas, and crashed into a tree. Anderson was seriously injured and her fiancé was killed. She initially sued General Motors and settled for $75,000. But because Anderson had trace amounts of an anti-anxiety drug in her system at the time of the accident, GM blamed her, and she pleaded guilty to criminal charges for the crash. Anderson now believes new evidence proves a faulty ignition switch may be to blame for the accident, and hopes that reopening her lawsuit may vindicate her.
