Date: May 14, 2004

Victim: Unknown

Location: Unknown; complaint filed from Honolulu.

Model: 2002 Toyota Camry

Details: A 68-year old woman was attempting to park her 2002 Camry when she crashed into a storefront. The car then went into reverse, striking other vehicles, before lurching forward again, hitting and killing a pedestrian.

Another woman whose vehicle was struck in the accident was injured so severely that she was left in a coma.

The incident is detailed in a complaint filed about two weeks after the accident with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration by an attorney representing the injured woman. The complaint alleged that the accident could be connected to unintended acceleration in Toyota vehicles. The 2002 Camry is not included in Toyota's recentrecalls.

The NHTSA complaint did not disclose the names of the pedestrian who was killed or the lawyer. Police in Honolulu said they were unable to search for an accident report dating back that far without having a victim's name. An account of a similar accident that same day involving a Camry reported by the Honolulu Advertiser said an unnamed driver was involved in two accidents that day and reportedly suffered from a medical condition that may have caused her to lose control of her car.
