A Texas family and Firestone have reached a settlement for an undisclosed amount. They settled as a jury continued to deliberate in the first tire defect suit against Firestone to come to trial. The family already had a $6 million settlement from Ford for their injuries from a blowout and rollover in their Explorer. NPR's Jackie Northam reports from McAllen, Texas.
