CBS News Conducts Investigative Report About
Unsafe Windshield Installations
November 14, 2012

CBS 2 in New York has aired an investigative report about improper
windshield installations detailing issues consumers need to watch
out for when getting a windshield replaced.
The story focuses on the tragic death of Jeanne Fransway resulting
from a car accident after she was ejected through the opening left
by an improperly installed windshield that had popped out of the
car on impact.
Her brother, Jon, has said in multiple reports that his sister
was found lying on top of the windshield after the accident. Fransway
conducted his own research and discovered the faulty installation.
Debra Levy, volunteer president of the Auto Glass Safety Council,
was also interviewed as part of the report.
"CBS New York was kind enough to do a 20-minute interview, but
of course a 20-minute interview gets pared down for television,"
The report, which was originally scheduled to air a few weeks ago,
was delayed because of coverage for Hurricane Sandy.
This story is just one of the latest consumer reports on faulty
windshield installations featured in the news. CBS
Sacramento ran an investigative report centering on improper
windshield installations in May. CBS
Minnesota also ran a national consumer report in May.
For more information on this latest report, CBS
New York has the full story and video.
