WASHINGTON, D.C. (WHSV) -- According to her father, a car accident which killed his daughter is connected to a recent General Motors recall.
On March 18, 27-year-old Laura Glass was driving a white Saturn Ion when she was unable to stop in time and rear-ended a tractor-trailer, causing the Ion to catch fire. Her airbag failed to deploy.
"After the accident, after the death of my daughter, I get another notice from General Motors saying they now have the part. Well we know that's not true. That is absolutely false. They do not have the parts to fix this car," said Jay Glass, Laura's father.
Glass, along with other families who lost loved ones in crashes linked to the safety defects went to Washington on Thursday hoping to meet with GM CEO Mary T. Barra, who declined to have a sit down.
The safety defect resulted in at least 13 deaths, including Laura's.
