Discovered information about defect on the 2000 durrango from the media this morning 3/4/2004 close friend considered family was killed in a head on collision on highway 156 in may of 2002. Entire family still to day was wondering what happened to make his vehicle go into another lane which cause the crash at 3:00pm. Autopsy report no drugs, no alcohol, no physical evidence of a heart attack or strock. It's been bothering us from that day as to what happened. On the picture of the vehicle front page of the hollister paper the durrango he was driving it's clear as day that the wheel on the driver side is bent and could have snap causing the fatal head on accident that not only killed leonardo marquez upon impact but also killed the women driver of the other vehicle upon impact. The article is on the front page of the free lance local paper hollister California tueday May 14th 2002 vol 129 issue 149. This steering defect information was never known by myself or the family until discovered on kpix channel 5 news 3/4/2004 which lead me to this web site.
