SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- This week there came a stunning admission from a company facing a series of lawsuits over guardrail safety.
The ABC7 News I-Team has investigated the dangers of guardrails made by Trinity Industries. The manufacturer maintains they are safe.
However, on Wednesday in a Texas courtroom, Trinity revealed for the first time there were five crash tests where the modified guardrails failed badly.
Still, the company says the tests were for a different configuration.
The guardrails should absorb the impact and curl off to the side, but the suit claims they malfunction and have caused serious and sometimes fatal injuries.
