Toyota lawsuit begins trial after eight years
Posted on Wednesday, January 28th, 2015
Koua Fong Lee, the man jailed for causing a fatal car accident eight years ago, is now bringing a product liability lawsuit against Toyota after problematic acceleration issues begin to surface nationwide, according to newsadvance.com.
In 2006, Lee was sentenced to jail for vehicular homicide after his Camry suddenly accelerated at a freeway exit in St. Paul, Minnesota, hitting an Oldsmobile driven by Javis Trice-Adams, Sr. at an estimated 75 mph. Trice-Adams and two children died in the accident. Lee always claimed that a problem with the car caused the accident, and 2.5 years into his sentence, he was released after other instances of acceleration problems in Toyotas were revealed. Lee is now bringing a product liability lawsuit against Japanese automaker Toyota Motor Corp. eight years after the accident.
