Toyota settles first wrongful death lawsuit regarding Sudden Acceleration

Toyota Motor Corp. has settled the first in a group of hundreds of pending wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits stemming from the sudden, unintended acceleration by Toyota vehicles.

Agreement was reached in a case brought by the family of Paul Van Alfen and Charlene Jones Lloyd.

They died when their Toyota Camry slammed into a wall in Utah in 2010.  The financial terms cannot be disclosed at this time.

The remaining lawsuits are not affected by the settlement.

Last month Toyota agreed to a settlement worth more than $1 Billion to resolved hundreds of lawsuit claiming economic losses Toyota owners suffered when the Japanese auto-maker recalled millions of vehicles.
