Arrow Toyota Settles For $10 Million In Deadly San Diego Crash

Toyota Settles For $10 Million In Deadly San Diego Crash

"Toyota and the families had moved to keep the amount of the settlement secret, but the request was denied by a Superior Court judge Monday.

While driving the Lexus, Saylor called 911 just after 6:30 p.m. the Friday evening after receiving the loaner car to report that his accelerator was stuck. Witnesses said the car was traveling northbound on state Route 125 in Santee at more than 100 mph when it entered a T-intersection with Mission Gorge Road.

The vehicle slammed into the rear end of a Ford Explorer and then plowed over a curb and through a fence before hitting an embankment and going airborne. It rolled several times before stopping and bursting into flames in the nearby San Diego River basin.

The CHP said those killed were Saylor, 45; his wife, Cleofe, 45; his daughter, Mahala, 13; and his brother-in-law, Chris Lastrella, 38."

The gear selector in a Prius is an electronic switch as well. No mechanical connection to the tranny.
