Nhtsa: No Evidence Of Toyota Electronics Problems

Recommended Posts

An initial review by federal investigators has turned up no evidence of electronic failures in Toyota Motor Corp. vehicles involved in suspected runaway acceleration cases.

...

Of the 58 cases studied, 35 event recorders showed no brake was applied -- a sign the driver hit the wrong pedal.

 

Partial braking was noted in 14 cases: Brakes were applied late in the crash sequence in nine cases; early in three; and mid-crash in two.

 

Pedal entrapment was involved in one incident; and in one case, the brakes and gas pedal both were depressed.

i honestly thought that anyone who could find the time to call 911 and spend 1:25 seconds making describing his plight and praying to jeebers before he punched into a wall probably deserves a darwin award.
