The Wall Street Journal reports that another wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against Toyota claiming sudden acceleration as the cause.  A young mother of two children died when her Toyota Corolla sped through a stop sign in Houston and crashed into a wall.

As a result of the crash, the mothers husband,  Michael Harris, filed a against Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A., gas pedal maker CTS Corp. and the company that leased the vehicle.  It is  likely that this is the third such case filed in response to acceleration problems on Toyota vehicles.

Toyota issued a voluntary recall related to floor mats and the accelerators in some 3.8 million vehicles in November. Last month it recalled 2.3 million cars, including many 2009 Carollas, to fix a mechanical problem with the accelerators.

It may not just be gas pedals but also steering related. Do some internet searching for the Toyota 2009 Corolla Steering.
