Toyota cleared in 2009 Camry crash that killed 66-year-old woman
A Los Angeles jury determined that Toyota Motor Corp. was not at fault for the death of 66-year-old Noriko Uno in 2009.
Uno’s death was blamed on the driver of a speeding car that collided with Uno’s 2006 Camry, causing her to drive on the wrong side of a one-way road and crash into a tree.
The jury rejected the prosecuting panel’s claims that the lack of a brake-override system in the Camry was the cause of the vehicle’s crash.
The other driver was ordered to pay $10 million in damages to Uno’s husband and son.
Toyota is facing around 85 personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits in relation to its 2009 and 2010 vehicle recalls due to acceleration-related concerns, such as sticky pedals and floor mats getting stuck under gas pedals.
