LAUREL, MS (WLBT) - A Laurel couple filed a lawsuit Friday against Toyota, blaming their son's death on faulty brakes.
The suit was filed in Los Angeles where the automaker is headquartered. A lawyer for Teresa and William Myers says the sudden, uncontrolled acceleration in their son's vehicle caused the fatal crash.
Twenty year-old Steffan Myers was killed in January when his 2005 Toyota Camry accelerated and smashed into another car. The driver of the other car was also killed. The accident occurred just days before Myers was scheduled to begin classes at Mississippi College.
