WASHINGTON/CHICAGO (Reuters) - Retired Wisconsin state trooper Keith Young and his wife were sitting at the kitchen table last month when a story on the evening news jarred them: General Motors Co was recalling 1.6 million vehicles for faulty ignition switches.
Young said the couple turned to each other immediately. "That's just like that crash over in St. Croix County in 2006," they said.
For former state trooper Young, the evidence was there all along.
"I'm not here to critique their work. I'm here to do my job," Young said of federal regulators. "When I detected something that was a little unusual, I passed that information on, and it apparently took them 8 or 10 years."
