The Army halted its use of the "Hummer" all-purpose vehicle because of brake-pedal failures, marking the first major glitch to affect the vehicle that replaced the venerable jeep. The brake failures on two vehicles at Ft. Jackson, S.C., did not result in accidents or injuries, an Army spokesman said. New brake pedals will be installed on about 1,400 of the carriers in use at two U.S. bases, the Army said.
