Nissan recalls 300,000 vehicles to adjust console panel

By The Associated Press

Nissan is recalling nearly 300,000 of its Versa and Versa Note vehicles to adjust a console panel that could catch the driver's shoe and slow braking speed.

The carmaker says it received a report of an accident involving injury, but no deaths have been tied to the issue.

It says in rare cases, the right edge of a driver's shoe might catch on the center console's lower trim panel.

Nissan North America Inc. says it will notify owners and dealers and modify the console trim panel for free.

The company expects to start the recall by mid-October.

It involves Versa sedans made between June 9, 2011, and March 11, 2015, and Versa Note vehicles made between April 23, 2013 and March 11, 2015.

    A truck driver is dead after a crash caused by extreme winds on an Oklahoma interstate. Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the driver was heading east on I-40 near El Reno when winds pushed the truck into the cable barrier and caused it to roll. Troopers say the driver, who has not been identified, was partially ejected through the driver side window and was pinned for about an hour. The medical examiner says the person died at the scene.
