Family of LA woman killed in crash sues Toyota

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (CBS 8) – Toyota is now facing a lawsuit in Los Angeles over another faulty gas pedal.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the family of Noriko Uno. Her 2006 Toyota Camry went out of control while driving in San Bernardino County.

She pulled the parking brake to slow down or stop, but the car drove on and hit a tree. Uno was killed in the crash.

The crash occurred on the same day a Lexus crashed in Santee, killing a California Highway Patrol officer and three family members.

The lawsuit asks Toyota to expand its recall to 2006 Camry models and to install a backup brake system.

Toyota representatives said they do not comment on pending lawsuits.
