DETROIT (AP) — Fiat Chrysler said Tuesday it is appealing a Georgia court’s order to pay $40 million to the family of a child who died in a Jeep fire.

Earlier this spring, a 12-person jury found Fiat Chrysler negligent and awarded $150 million in damages to the family of 4-year-old Remington Walden. He died in 2012 after a Jeep Grand Cherokee he was riding in was hit from behind and burst into flames. The Jeep’s gas tank was mounted behind the rear axle, leaving it vulnerable in a rear crash.
