WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Ford Motor Co <F.N> said Wednesday it is recalling about 375,000 Explorer SUVs in North America for a part that can break and lead to a crash.

The second-largest U.S. automaker said the recall covers some 2013-2017 model vehicles because of a possible fracture of the outboard section of the rear suspension toe link after a prior recall was completed. Ford said it is aware of reports of 13 crashes and six injuries related to this condition.
