Toyota settles sudden acceleration case for ten million dollars
Toyota settled a California sudden acceleration case causing the death of California Highway Patrol Officer Mark Saylor and three family members.
The last words of the officer were captured on a horrifying 911 emergency call as the vehicle continued accelerating into an intersection ending in a fiery crash and deaths of the family members. The graphic call of the officer brought public attention to the sudden acceleration problem routinely denied by Toyota. See the Los Angles Times
Discovery in this case is ended. Discovery is part of a lawsuit where parties must disclose information about matters including potential defects. Lets hope the cause or causes of the many Toyota sudden acceleration deaths is established and corrected to prevent loss and suffering to other families in the future.
