Lynda's Story

Summary of Lynda’s Story here.

On June 10, 2010 Lynda was driving her 2008 Prius on the highway, the vehicle lunged and continued accelerating to 70 mph.  Even with a hard brake, she could not slow the vehicle down below 45 mph.  Fearing she was going to crash, she drove into a drainage ditch and struck 3 culverts before coming to rest.  Smoke was billowing out from under both front wheel wells.  A trucker behind her used a fire extinguisher on the wheels.  Lynda was shaken and bruised.  Toyota claimed there was no evidence of a design defect to cause the accident.
