Oscars 2017: 'Moonlight' wins best picture after botched announcement

 

Date: Sept. 12, 2008

Victim: Dustin Ricardo

Location: Clarksville, Tenn.

Model: 2007 Toyota Camry

Details: Dustin Ricardo's 2007 Camry veered off a residential road, crossed the front lawn of a home and struck a tree, killing him, according to a lawsuit his family filed against Toyota.

The lawsuit noted that Ricardo's Camry was equipped with floor mats that have been subject to recall because they could cause the accelerator pedal to become stuck and cause unintended acceleration.
