General Motors pays $5.75 million settlement in California, following ignition switch scandal

General Motors has agreed to pay US$5.75 million (AU$7.5 million) to the US state of California, following new allegations it was deceptive in the wake of its deadly ignition switch scandal. The widespread fault – in which certain models were subject to complete engine shut down because the ignition could not handle the weight of keys, thus preventing the deployment of airbags in an accident – led to at least 124 deaths and 275 injuries.
