Seat Belts and Air Bags Expert Witness Testimony Crucial in GM Saturn Trial
Bill Muzzy's testimony is crucial in the civil trial against TRW Vehicle Safety Systems, the company that manufactures seatbelts for General Motors. The seat belt and air bags expert witness was cross examined for five hours in the 146th District Court in Killeen Texas. Muzzy maintains that a design flaw in a seatbelt led to the death of Jenny Singley. kdhnews.com also reports that the expert witness's credentials include his role as investigator of the restraint system in the fatal Dale Earnhardt crash and 5,500 experiments on human volunteers for the Navy and Air Force during the Cold War, which involved testing human tolerance to acceleration. "We have all the evidence in total to show the seatbelt didn't operate correctly," Muzzy said. "This is the most likely scenario."
