While driving down the road, the hood latch on my 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 released. This caused the hood to fly up, crashing into the windshield. The windshield shattered, the hood twisted beyond repair, and the hood springs were completely mangled. I found an article on Consumer Affairs showing that there have been 30 consumer complaints regarding the same incident. We have filed a claim w/ the insurance company for severe damages.
