The Department of Justice has subpoenaed nearly 10 years worth of documents from Trinity Industries on Wednesday. The DOJ has opened up a criminal investigation into the relationship between Trinity Industries and Federal Highway Administration. The subpoena was issued by the United States attorney for Massachusetts. It asks for documents regarding the Trinity ET-Plus. Trinity was found liable by a federal jury last year when a whistle blower indicated that Trinity changed the design of the guardrail without notifying the federal government. The whistle blower also claims the Trinity Guardrails are defective and can pierce through a car injuring drivers and passengers. There have already been a handful of Trinity Guardrail lawsuits filed around the country.
CBS Channel 13 did an investigation on the Department of Justice's investigation into Trinity Industry. You can watch that Trinity Guardrail investigation video below.
Trinity announced that it will cooperate with the government in regards to this criminal investigation. You can read the documents with Securities and Exchange Commission in regards to the subpoena here.
The SEC filing says the government is asking Trinity for documents related to it's possibly defective guardrail as far back as 1999 and up to the current day.
