Toyota not at fault in fatal crash of 2006 Camry, Calif. jury finds

Toyota wasn’t at fault in a fatal accident in which a 66-year-old woman crashed her 2006 Camry into a tree after it sped out of control in the wrong direction on a one-way road, a California jury said.

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

The jury has spoken and determined that Toyota was not to blame for a fatal car accident which killed a matriarch of a local Los Angeles family.  The main theory of recovery for the family was that the Toyota Camry suffered from a defective design in not having a brake override system in place to prevent unintended acceleration. This may affect many other, similar claims that are pending nationwide.  Toyota paid out over a billion dollars to settle the class action lawsuits related to these acceleration cases but, still faces numerous claims by individuals that are still pending in various courts across the U.S.
