Thousands Of Ford Bronco’s Were Recalled On Same Day As OJ Simpson’s Death

You can’t make this up.

On Wednesday, it was announced that O.J. Simpson had passed away following a battle of cancer. On the same day, Ford recalled tens of thousands of Bronco vehicles.

Over 40,000 Bronco Sport and Escape vehicles were recalled on Wednesday due to a possible cracked fuel injector that could lead to a fire, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced. Ford says that the recall is mainly for vehicles that were manufactured in 2022 and 2023. 

Everyone knows about O.J. Simpson’s infamous police chase in on June 17, 1994 which involved Simpson’s Ford Bronco driving down the Los Angeles freeway in the wake of the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman.


Ford would eventually pull the white Bronco line in 1996 following backlash due to the horrific murders. They returned in 2020.
