NHTSA investigating possible police vehicle brake issue

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- An investigation is underway by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration into possible braking issues with the Ford Explorer Police vehicle. The agency says it has received a report from a police department of 13 brake line failures in 11 vehicles.

An examination of the brake hoses found small splits on the sides of the hoses. So far there have been no reports of accidents or injuries due to the problem.

Ford officials say they are cooperating with the investigation.
