Ford is recalling 1.4 million vehicles because the steering wheels can come loose and potentially come off while driving.

According to CNN, Ford says it is aware of two accidents and one injury that may have been caused by this issue.

The Ford Fusion and the Lincoln MKZ from model years 2014 through 2018 are impacted.

Ford told CNN that the problem is a steering wheel bolt could come loose, which could cause the steering wheel to potentially detach.

The company also announced a recall of another 6,000 vehicles due to a risk of fire from a clutch pressure plate fracture, but all of those recalled cars are manual transmission cars, which are not commonly sold.

The affected models are 2013-16 Ford Focuses and 2013-15 Ford Fusions.
