Connie Daniell attempted to commit suicide by locking herself inside the trunk of her Ford LTD. She remained in the trunk for nine days, but survived after finally being rescued. Later, Daniell brought a negligence action against Ford in an effort to recover for her resulting physical and psychological injuries. She contended that the LTD was defectively designed because its trunk did not have an internal release or opening mechanism. She also argued that Ford was liable for negligently failing to warn her that the trunk could not be unlocked from within. Was Ford liable for negligent design and/or negligent failure to warn?
