Louisville Car Accident Involving Recalled Toyota Leaves 6 InjuredPosted on Feb 20, 2010
According to reports, the driver of a 2007 Toyota Tundra rear-ended another vehicle when his gas pedal apparently became stuck prohibiting him from stopping. The driver has been identified as Scott Tarter, of Louisville. Tarter told police that he tried to stop but could not.
Rhonda Muehl told police that she had stopped in front of her house waiting for traffic to clear so she could turn into her driveway when the Toyota hit her from behind. The force of the impact caused Muehl’s car to strike a Ford Explorer which eventually came to rest in her front yard.
“I heard he tires squealing like someone trying to stop,” Muehl said. "It pushed me into this lane then I hit a Ford Explorer and me and the Ford Explorer landed in my front yard. It hit me so hard it busted out the back window.”
Rescue crews transported six people to a local hospital where they were treated for injuries sustained in the accident. Their identities and conditions were not made available.
The Louisville accident is still under investigation by local authorities. If you have a Toyota that you may believe has been recalled, you should contact the manufacturer immediately.
