Freed after Toyota recall

A man who spent three years in prison for a fatal crash is free, and Toyota's massive recall may have helped win his release. Koua Fong Lee was released last Thursday. The accident happened in 2006, when Koua was driving an older Camry, a 1996 model. It was not subject to any of the recent recalls, but the attention from his case prompted the review and turned up new evidence and new witnesses. He joined CNN's American Morning along with his attorney, Brent Schafer Monday.

    Good for this guy. I had my accelerator stick on my Lexis is250 not long ago and it was not fun. If this had happened to an older person or a woman there would have been injuries or even fatalities.
