Jury says it hasn't reached verdict in Toyota Camry case
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Jurors have told a judge they haven't been able to reach a verdict in a case that alleges the 1996 Toyota Camry had a design defect that caused a crash, killing three people.
U.S. District Judge Ann Montgomery on Monday ordered the jury to keep working.
The plaintiffs include crash victims and Koua Fong Lee, who says he tried to stop his 1996 Camry before crashing into another vehicle in St. Paul in 2006.
Lee was convicted of vehicular homicide and sent to prison. He was released after reports surfaced that suggested some Toyota cars had sudden acceleration problems.
The jurors must decide whether Toyota's design had an unreasonably dangerous defect, and if so, whether it caused the crash.
