Louisville Auto Accident Involves Recalled ToyotaPosted on Feb 10, 2010
According to reports, there were three passengers in the Toyota Camry at the time of the incident. Rescue crews transported all the victims to a nearby hospital where they were treated for injuries.
The driver, Todd Allen, may have suffered a spinal cord injury as a result of the crash. The three other unidentified passengers were treated at the hospital, but later released.
Allen blamed the incident on a stuck accelerator pedal.
Toyota announced on January 21, 2010, that they were recalling at least 4 million vehicles that may have problems with accelerator pedals becoming jammed.
Allen’s wife was unsure whether their Camry had been one of the vehicles that had been recalled, but indicated that Allen had both feet on the brake at the time of the incident.
The Louisville auto accident is still under investigation by Louisville Police and they expect a full report of the accident to be available in the coming days.
This is a tragic and unfortunate incident. Our thoughts go out to all of those affected in the crash. Anyone who has a Toyota Camry should check with Toyota to see if the car they own has been recalled.
