Complaint - Seats

WHEN TURNING INTO A CHURCH PARKING LOT FOR A WEDDING. THE DURANGO WAS STRUCK FROM BEHIND (AT ABOUT 40 MPH) AND THE DRIVER SEAT BROKE AND I WAS LAID BACK UNABLE TO REACH THE BRAKE PEDAL OR STEERING WHEEL. THE DURANGO TRAVELED APPROX 20 FEET BEFORE HITTING A PARKED JEEP. THE PASSENGER AND I BOTH RECEIVED INJURIES AND CURRENTLY UNDER CARE. DODGE NEEDS TO DO A RECALL ON THE FAULTY PARTS IN THE DRIVER ELECTRIC SEATS THAT ARE CAUSING THE ROCKING BACK AND FORTH CAUSING THE MOUNTING BRACKETS TO FAIL AND BRAKE. I HAVE SEEN NOT POSTS OF DEATHS OCCURRING BUT IT IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE IT DOES. WE WERE VERY LUCKY.
