“Brakes,” Lee called to his family as they sped toward two stationary vehicles. “Brakes not working!” AOL NEWS reports a story on Koua Fong Lee, who was 29 years old when his Toyota Camry suddenly accelerated to between 70 and 90 miles per hour and crashed into another vehicle killing 3 people. Prosecutors said there was nothing wrong with the car and a jury sentenced him to prison. “We plan to employ experts familiar with the ’96 Camry and the components that make up the car to show that rapid acceleration is to blame for the accident, not Mr. Lee accidentally stepping on the accelerator,” one of Lee’s lawyers, Brent Schaefer, told CNN.
