Another Cop Sickened By Possible Carbon Monoxide Leak in a Ford SUV
CNN/Stylemagazine.com Newswire | 8/4/2017, 9:40 a.m.
Authorities in Massachusetts say a police officer was exposed to carbon monoxide gas while driving a Ford SUV police vehicle, possibly causing him to lose consciousness and rear-end another car. The incident in Auburn, Massachusetts comes just days after the Austin, Texas police department removed more than 400 Ford Interceptor SUVs, a modified version of the Explorer, from its fleet after detecting potentially dangerous levels of the odorless gas inside its vehicles. Ford said last week that the company had not found elevated levels of carbon monoxide in "regular" Ford Explorers. Auburn Police Department Sgt. Scott Mills told CNN that carbon monoxide was detected in the officer's bloodstream. Carbon monoxide levels in his car also appeared elevated.
