An El Paso couple is shaken up after they say their truck's hood suddenly flew open as they drove down the interstate last month.
The hood slammed into the windshield, blinding the driver, and causing him to swerve off the road.
NewsChannel 9 has learned dozens of other drivers around the country have reported the same problem happening to their 2001 Dodge Ram 1500.
In fact, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration even launched an investigation into the reported problem, but no recall was ever made.
Coming up tonight on NewsChannel 9 at 6 we'll show you what investigators have said about the problem, and why it may be up to the driver to keep it from happening.
