DETROIT (WKZO) -- A new class action suit has been filed against General Motors in connection with an ignition switch problem that has led to dozens of crashes and at least twelve deaths. A new suit filed this week includes stories from 13 plaintiffs who all outline how the faulty switch caused them to lose control of their cars.

"Since at least 2005, GM has known that simply replacing the ignition switches on the defective vehicles is not a solution for the potential for the key to inadvertently turn from the 'run' to the 'accessory/off' position in these vehicles," an attorney tells WDIV-TV.

GM has recalled 1.6-million vehicles because of the problem and CEO Mary Barra is scheduled to testify for two days in DC as part of a federal investigation into the issue.
