General Motors CEO Mary Barra and David Friedman, acting administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, testified at a hearing on the automaker’s ignition switch recall. The defect was linked to at least a dozen deaths.

Ms. Barra in her opening statement apologized to the public, victims, and families of victims, and said that she and the company were committed to doing the right thing. She also announced that she had launched an internal inquiry and that people would be held accountable when the investigation was completed. Among other changes, Ms. Barra said GM had hired compensation expert Kenneth Feinberg to handle damage control and dealing with victims with regard to potential funds and liabilities.

David Friedman told the committee that NHTSA also had an open investigation on what went wrong and whether or not GM failed to relay critical information to the agency concerning the faulty switches. close
