Kent Emison was interviewed on this week’s episode of ABC’s 20/20 news program for an investigative report on defective Trinity Guardrails. Documents show that Trinity modified the design of guardrail end-terminals in order to save about $50,000. The company did not tell highway officials and now guardrails are failing across the country, resulting in severe injuries and death to motorists the guardrails are supposed to protect. The 20/20 report featured details about several people injured by these defective guardrails, including our client Brad Abeln, who was killed when the defective end terminal allowed the guardrail to slice through his vehicle like a spear.
