Description

From the contest entry summary: "60 Minutes II investigated a popular American vehicle, the 15-passenger van, that transports students, day care children, scout troops, church groups and hotel guests throughout the country." The story reveals that the van is one of the most dangerous vehicles on the road because of design flaws; that the more people on board, the more unstable it becomes; and that 425 people have been killed in passenger van accidents since 1990.
