The investigation covers the Ram 1500 pickup from the 2013 to 2016 model years and the 2014 to 2016 Dodge Durango SUV.

The agency notes that none of the reports indicate the parking brake was engaged at the time of the incident.

The 2013-2016 Ram 1500 trucks and 2014-2016 Dodge Durango SUVs are equipped with electronically shifted transmissions and electronic rotary controls for gear selections.

This new investigation launched by the USA auto regulator covers 2013-2016 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup trucks and the 2014-2016 Dodge Durangos.

Patients of female doctors show better survival
It's possible that gender serves as a marker of differences in practice patterns that might influence outcomes, they say. Overall, the researchers deduced that the sex of the doctor seemed to have an influence on the risk of patient death.

In April, Fiat Chrysler recalled more than 1.1 million cars and SUVs worldwide because the vehicles may roll away after drivers exit.

USA safety regulators have launched an investigation into about a million newer Fiat Chrysler pickup trucks and SUVs after receiving complaints of the vehicles rolling away after being parked. Fiat Chrysler America has maintained that the parts involved in the 41 injuries did not include any equipment failure. To date, NHTSA has received 43 rollaway complaints from owners of those vehicles.

The Durangos and Rams now being investigated have a dial-like rotary knob that clicks into place when a gear is selected.

It looks like Chrysler's shifter troubles are far from over.

But quarterback Marcus Mariota was unable to get rid of the ball cleanly, as he was under pressure from the Chiefs' defense. The Titans lost safety Da'Norris Searcy to a concussion and cornerback Jason McCourty to a chest injury in the first half.

NHTSA notes that none of the complaints suggest that the vehicles' parking brakes were applied. Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin was crushed by a Grand Cherokee with that shifter.

In 2012 Honda recalled 871 000 vehicles that could roll away after the ignition key has been removed, saying a component in the ignition interlock could become damaged or worn, enabling the key to be removed even if the vehicle's shift lever hadn't been moved into park. Those owners said their vehicles crashed, resulting in four injuries.

The Fiat Chrysler brands, Dodge and Ram, have been the most reliable and safest sports utility and truck manufacturer. However, some reports are still saying that the accidents happened due to human error, or driver negligence.
