Heads up! If you're driving this pickup truck

Ford is recalling over 550,000 2014 F-150 pickup trucks due to an issue with the transmission that may cause the vehicle to abruptly downshift into first gear, which could potentially cause the vehicle to crash, according to NHTSA documents.

According to the documents, the recall covers 552,188 vehicles. The issue stems from a temporary loss in signal between the transmission output shaft speed sensor and the powertrain control module, which can result the driver losing control of the vehicle no matter how fast it's going:

"Some vehicles may experience an intermittent loss of the transmission Output Shaft Speed (OSS) sensor signal to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM), potentially resulting in a temporary, unintended downshift into first gear."

The good news? Only about 1% of the recalled vehicles are expected to have the issue, which is fewer than 100 vehicles. But it's still important to take proper precautions.

Here's Jason Kelce's $2.2 Million Beach House in Sea Isle City, New Jersey

Ever since Jason Kelce made his emotional retirement announcement, the former Eagles Center has embraced the post-football life. Having grown up in Ohio and playing College Football at the University of Cincinnati, some would think Jason Kelce would spend his post-career years back at home, but he has chosen to live in New Jersey.

Thanks to his wife Kylie growing up in the Suburban Philadelphia area and playing his entire NFL career for the Eagles, Jason Kelce has now planted his life here in Eagles Country. After vacationing in Sea Isle City for years, the Kelces have purchased a Beach House in South Jersey. Makes sense considering Sea Isle City is one of the 50 Best Places to Retire in New Jersey and one of the best towns to live in Cape May County.
