Tennessee Man Calls for Federal Recall of Deadly Guardrails

The Tennessee man whose daughter was killed after her vehicle crashed into a guardrail is calling for a federal recall of the Lindsay X-Lite guardrails. Steve Eimers lost his 17-year-old daughter Hannah when her vehicle was impaled by the guardrail end. The X-Lite is supposed to absorb the impact of a crash.

Last year, Eimers sued Lindsay Transportation Solutions for Hannah’s death. Recently, he met with congressional aides to seek support for recalling the guardrails nationwide. Some states have already stopped new installations of the X-Lites, but many still have hundreds in place along their highways.

States Begin Replacing Dangerous Guardrails

Tennessee has begun replacing its 1,800 X-Lite guardrails around the state, which should be completed by June. In response to Eimer’s petition, the state of Rhode Island recently agreed to remove the X-Lites from their highways.

Lindsay Transportation Solutions continues to insist the X-Lite guardrails are safe. However, at least six people, including Eimer’s daughter, have been killed in crashes with the guardrails.

“When a product intended to keep people safe is actually causing harm instead, it is in the public’s best interest to issue a recall,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
