The family of one of four people killed in a Toyota crash in Southlake is suing the Japanese carmaker.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the lawsuit is at least the third filed against Toyota in Texas recently over fatal accidents, allegedly caused by sudden and uncontrollable acceleration. Toyota recently recalled more than 8 million vehicles including 2005-10 Avalon models. The recall was to address concerns over floor mat and gas pedal problems that could potentially cause the dangerous acceleration.
A Toyota spokesman declined to comment Friday.
