Full Episode Summary

The federal government fined General Motors $35 million, the maximum penalty allowed by law, for failing to tell safety regulators about a defect that's been linked to 13 deaths and 31 crashes. Internal documents show how GM trained employees to tamp down bad news; and, as part of our continuing series “On the Road,” Steve Hartman meets Gina Pearson who was more likely to end up behind bars than graduating with a college degree. But she credits her turnaround to a very special person.moreless
