General Motors’ ongoing safety crisis over deadly ignition switches deepened on Monday with the recall of 8.23 million mostly older cars linked by the U.S. automaker to three deaths. The latest recalls boosted the number of deaths acknowledged by GM to at least 16 in cars with switch-related problems. The latest fatalities occurred in two separate high-speed crashes, one involving a 2003 Chevrolet Impala, the other a 2004 Impala. The air bags failed to deploy in both crashes, but GM cannot conclusively link the nondeployment to the ignition switches.
