problem #1

Nov 112017


  • 17,800 miles
The lowest part of the front driver or passenger doors come to a very sharp point at the rear of the door. On Nov. 11,2017 in a costco parking lot a gust of wind blew the door closed on my leg causing a deep wound from the sharp penetrating edge of the door. Costco employees performed emergency medical help to stop the massive bleeding. As of this date the wound is still being treated. (hospital has pictures) upon asking the doctor and wound nurse if I was the only one they had seen with this type of wound, I was surprised to hear them reply that I was among thousands. The cure for preventing this type of accident in the design of any vehicles front driver and passenger doors is simple. Two door cars and trucks are rounded at the low trailing edge point. Rear doors on four door cars and trucks are rounded. It should not be a big design or engineering problem to cure. I do not have pics of my leg, the hospital does. They can be gotten if needed. The main issue to me is to eliminate the razor sharp lower trailing edge of the doors on all models and makes of autos and trucks. My vehicle stationary in parking lot. Wind provided the energy to close the door on my leg. I will also contact my legislature representatives. Thank you. John L. orr
