Toyota Accelerator Lawsuit

Toyota Accelerator Lawsuit

February 18, 2010 HOUSTON Ford Atkinson, Fox News – A Pearland woman is suing Toyota, claiming her husband was killed when the accelerator on his minivan malfunctioned.

Carolyn Simmons filed the lawsuit in Brazoria County District Court on Tuesday.

The suit claims a defective accelerator caused Gerald Simmons to crash into a school building in 2008.

Carolyn Simmons says her two daughters were in the back of the Toyota Sienna when the accident happened.

“They saw their father be crushed to death,” Simmons says.

Her attorney, Rob Ammons, claims the Japanese automaker was negligent.

Ammons says “They have made and sold a defective product, a product that has caused death and significant injuries.”

The Sienna is not on the list of recalled vehicles Toyota admits suffered from design problems.
