Ford Explorers blamed for alleged carbon monoxide leaks that sickened cops

WASHINGTON — Newly-released dashcam video from March appears to show Sgt. Zachary LaHood sickened by what his department says was carbon monoxide seeping into his Ford Explorer police cruiser.

In the last week alone, six more Austin officers have been treated for carbon monoxide exposure. The department has now taken about 37 Ford Explorers out of service.

In February, CBS News identified more than 450 complaints involving 2011 to 2017 model year Ford Explorers, not just police units. Federal regulators acknowledge that number has grown and are investigating. 

At least a half-dozen officers in Louisiana, California, and Texas are suing Ford over allegations of carbon monoxide exposure.
