Toyota Continues to Deny Electronic System Defect in Vehicles

By Car Accident Help on March 24, 2010

On the heels of Toyota defect recall after recall, Toyota Motor Corporation is sticking by its claim that the issues causing its vehicles to unintentionally accelerate are not related to faulty electronic safety systems. Specifically, Toyota maintains that instances of unintended acceleration are caused either by gas pedals remaining in the depressed position due to an easy-to-fix mechanical problem or faulty floor mats. According to a Reuters.com article, Toyota has discredited outside sources which conclude that the issues surrounding Toyota vehicles may stem from electronic system errors.

Reportedly, Professor David Gilbert, an auto engineering expert at Southern Illinois University, was able to replicate the unintended acceleration scenario in which so many motorists have already been injured or lost their lives. Professor Gilbert did this by manipulating the Toyota vehicles’ electronic throttle control system.

By Car Accident Help on March 22, 2010

Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs often ends in tragedy. Personal injury up to and including wrongful death are prevalent in such types of cases, as a recent incident in southwest Oklahoma City illustrates. According to a news9.com article, a fatal accident involving a 60-year-old driver who was under-the-influence and a family of four ended with serious injuries befalling two children, one of whom lost his life.

Reportedly, the negligent driver ran into the family’s car while they were stopped at a red light near the intersection of I-240 Service Road and Western Avenue. The family’s car was consequently pushed into the intersection, where it was struck by a third vehicle attempting to make a left hand turn. The impaired driver deemed responsible for the accident then proceeded to crash his own vehicle into a utility pole. The two children in the family car, ages 5 and 3, were both taken to the hospital. However, the 5-year-old boy was unable to recover from his injuries, ultimately losing his life. Read the rest »
