    I agree they should look into the possibilities of the Toyota pedal defect. Could she have taken her seatbelt off to jump out because she knew she had a run away car??? May God bless all of her family.

    Who knows...the pedal may have been "stuck" under her foot.

    My sympathy to the family of Ms. Smith, especially her two daughters. I do think it would be very wise considering she was driving a Toyota, to have the vehicle throughly inspected for a possible defect, especially if she was familiar with the road she was traveling.
