Did Toyota Cause a Wrongul Conviction in Minnesota?
Could this man be doing 8 years in prisonin Minnesota for a fatal accident because of a Toyota faulty gas pedal? (hat tip to Scribe.)
The convicted man is a recent Hmong immigrant. He insisted he did everything he could to avoid the accident and hit the brakes.
Lee, a recent Hmong immigrant with only about a year of driving experience, was driving his pregnant wife, 4-year-old daughter, father and brother home from church the afternoon of June 10, 2006, when their Camry zoomed up an Interstate 94 exit ramp in St. Paul. Police said it was traveling between 70 and 90 mph when it rear-ended an Oldsmobile stopped at a red light.
Good for the prosecutor who said he's willing to take another look at the case.
