Lawsuits Expected From Deadly 2006 Toyota Crash

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- A handful of lawsuits are expected over a 2006 crash in St. Paul that killed three people, after the driver of a Toyota Camry said he couldn't stop.

Michael Padden is an attorney for Quincy Ray Adams -- one of two people injured after being rear-ended by Koua Fong Lee.

Padden says Toyota Motor Corp. and a local dealer were served with Adams' lawsuit last week. Padden intends to file that lawsuit and three others in Ramsey County District Court in coming weeks.

The Adams lawsuit claims the crash was caused by a defect in the Camry.

Toyota has recalled more than 8 million vehicles for sudden unintended acceleration. The recall doesn't include cars as old as Lee's. A Toyota attorney says the company doesn't comment on pending litigation.
