Ford F-150 investigation expands

NewsChannel 10

The government is expanding its ongoing investigation into Ford's F-150 pickup trucks.

Federal investigators are looking into whether the steel straps holding the fuel tanks on certain models can corrode and break, possibly sparking a fire.

The government says up to 2.7 million F-150 pickups from the 1997 to 2001 model years could be recalled.
