Our daughter was driving along us highway 83 approximately 3.5 miles North of junction, Texas when the 2002 Z71 Chevrolet pickup traveling South, unexpectedly and with great force without the driver's control, made a right turn off the roadway causing severe damage to the vehicle and injury. Either defective steering and/or the front passenger side cv joint locked up causing the vehicle to be totalled. Vehicle had all current and suggested mainentence by the owner's manual but must have had some type of defect.
