According to the latest report from the General Motors compensation program published Monday, 21 fatalities linked to the defective ignition switch that launched a thousand recalls will receive payments.
Reuters reports 675 claims for serious injury or death were submitted to attorney Kenneth Feinberg’s office since August 1, when acceptance began. The office also reported 16 serious injury claims were proclaimed eligible for compensation.
Out of the claims submitted thus far, 143 were fatality claims, up from 131 reported earlier last week. Meanwhile, the 21 claims paid-out exceed GM’s own reported 13 fatalities linked to the switch used in a handful of Chevrolet, Pontiac and Saturn compacts in the early to mid-2000s.

How many of the 21 were hammered drunk?
Don't drunks have a right not to be killed by GM?
