Ford is to appeal a $US225 million wrongful death award handed down by a Texas jury last week over the deaths of two people in an accident involving one of its popular F-150 pickup trucks, according to Reuters. "We will be appealing it," Ford spokeswoman Kathleen Vokes told Reuters. According to Reuters, the Plaintiffs in the case alleged that defective roof and door latches contributed to the deaths of Paul Alaniz, 35, and Laura Benavides, 20, when the F-150 extended-cab pickup they were riding in rolled over during an accident in southern Texas in July last year.
