On May 15, 2010 Patrick Ambroise was in his parked Ford Crown Victoria when he was rear ended. A vehicle veered onto the shoulder of the road and slammed into his car. The car then burst into flames and Mr. Ambroise died at the scene in the blaze on a Florida turnpike. Patrick was a 35 year old Highway Patrol Trooper.
The widow of Patrick and his two young daughters have filed a wrongful death claim and are seeking unspecified damages. The claim states that Ford sold poorly designed vehicles because of the placement of the gas tank. The gas tank placement makes the car more prone to burst into flames if rear ended.
Patrick is not the first among law enforcement officers to be killed because of these Ford vehicles. Along with Ford the driver of the vehicle is also being sued.
