Toyota first agreement on fatalities related to sudden accelerations

The automaker Toyota rule the first of hundreds of controversial cases of deaths caused by sudden acceleration problems in its vehicles, has confirmed a spokesman for the company.

The regulation concerns the family of Paul Van Alfen and Charlene Jones Lloyd who lost their lives after the vehicle in which he was traveling was packed and go crashing against a wall in Utah in 2010. Holder speech said that the company would not make public the terms of the agreement.

Last month, the company had obtained a settlement involving more than one billion dollars to resolve hundreds of lawsuits that relate to the financial losses incurred by vehicle owners Toyota, but hundreds of others involving death remain in dispute.

Because the Van Alfen was the first to be tried, it should serve as a precedent for all others.
