Louisville Car Accident Involves Recalled Camry
There were four passengers, including the driver, Todd Allen, inside the vehicle at the time of the incident. All four victims were transported to a nearby hospital and treated for injuries sustained in the wreck.
Reports indicate that Allen may have suffered a spinal cord injury in the accident. The other three victims were treated and later released from the hospital.
According to Allen, the incident occurred when the accelerator became stuck. His wife later said that her husband had both feet on the brake, but it didn’t matter. She was unclear whether their car was one of the models that had been recalled
On January 21, 2010, Toyota announced that they were recalling at least 4 million cars that may have similar issues with stuck accelerators. They also indicated that many dealers may not have the required parts to address the issues with the pedals as of yet.
The Louisville Police are still investigating the accident and expect to have a full report available in the upcoming days.
Our thoughts go out to everyone who was affected by this unfortunate accident. If you or someone you know owns a Toyota Camry, it is imperative that you check to see if your model has been recalled by the manufacturer.
