Massachusetts senator says highway safety agency "fell down" in GM investigation

Laura Christian's 16-year-old daughter, Amber, died inside a Chevy Cobalt, on July 29, 2005.
"I went downstairs and my phone rang," Christian recalled. "Amber had been in an accident and she didn't make it."
It is the first death linked to General Motor's faulty ignition recall, involving one and a half million GM cars.

A defect in the ignition that can cause the engine to cut off is linked to 31 crashes and 13 deaths."When you lose your daughter whether you're the first one, or whether you're the last one, she's still gone and it's still their fault for not fixing the problem," Christian said.

Now the federal government is investigating whether GM dragged its feet on the recall. But there are also concerns that the government was slow to respond as well.
