US probes Ford pickup tailgates
U.S. safety regulators are trying to figure out why the power tailgates on some Ford F-Series pickup trucks can open unexpectedly while the trucks are moving.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened an investigation into thousands of F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks from the 2017 model year.
The agency says in documents posted Wednesday that it has five complaints from owners about the problem. It says unsecured loads could spill onto the road.
More misconduct by Weinstein detective
A police detective already facing allegations that he coached a witness in Harvey Weinstein’s criminal sexual-assault case was accused Wednesday of urging one of the movie mogul’s accusers to delete material from her cellphones before she gave them to prosecutors.
The Manhattan district attorney’s office detailed the alleged misconduct in a letter to Weinstein’s lawyer made public Wednesday.
The new allegations against Detective Nicholas DiGaudio involve an unidentified woman who says Weinstein raped her in his Manhattan hotel room in 2013. In the letter, Assistant District Attorney Joan Illuzzi-Orbon said during the investigation, prosecutors asked the woman to hand in any mobile phones she might have used during the time when she interacted with Weinstein.
