Auto headlines: Chrysler won't stop at Toledo plant


Chrysler will continue production at its Toledo North Assembly Plant in Ohio, reversing an earlier decision to stop output after an accident at a door-part supplier's nearby plant.

Chrysler, the U.S. automaker run by Fiat, earlier said it planned to stop production because the explosion at Faurecia Interior Systems' plant in Northwood, Ohio, would constrain supplies.

"We're hand-to-mouth, but it's looking like we won't need to shut down after all," Katie Hepler, a Chrysler spokeswoman, said Tuesday in an interview. "We're getting in enough to make it."

Nine people were injured Tuesday in the blast at the Faurecia factory, Amy Stribrny, a dispatcher with Northwood's police department, said in a telephone interview.

The cause of the blast hasn't been determined. The explosion occurred at 7:16 a.m. and involved a grease machine, she said.

The injured people were taken to a local hospital, and the company sent workers home for the day, Stribrny said.

Workers say they heard a loud pop and then saw thick, black smoke. Authorities just outside Toledo say all the injuries appear to be minor.
