The investigative reporters at WTAE-TV discover that there is a greater risk of accidents with usage of guardrails on major interstates and roads, especially for light trucks and sport utility vehicles. The reporter discovered that, during an eight year span, there were 82 fatal accidents with SUVs and guardrails in Pennsylvania. There has been little effort to fix this problem because of a state Supreme Court ruling which determined that the state could not be sued for unsafe guardrails.
