Jury Awards $3M to Victims in Toyota Sudden Acceleration Case

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-10_85278ddc01.jpgHarold Cunningham/Getty Images (OKLAHOMA CITY) -- An Oklahoma City jury Thursday found Toyota liable for an accident that killed a passenger and seriously injured the driver when their 2005 Camry accelerated out of control in 2007. Jurors agreed that electronic defects caused the vehicle to accelerate and crash into a wall, leaving one passenger dead and the driver seriously injured, reports the Los Angeles Times.

 

The jury awarded $3 million in compensatory damages to the family of Barbara Schwarz, the passenger who died in the crash, and Jean Bookout, the surviving driver. Bookout and Schwarz's family will also receive punitive damages, based on the jury's finding of "reckless disregard" in Toyota's actions, according to the Times.  Deliberations on the punitive damages are scheduled for Friday.

Toyota has declined to comment on the verdict while the case is ongoing.
