Laurel couple files lawsuit against Toyota

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - A Laurel couple has filed a lawsuit against Toyota blaming uncontrollable acceleration as the cause of death of their 20-year-old.

William and Teresa Meyers say their son Steffan was killed in an accident on January 10. The couple filed the lawsuit Friday in federal court in Los Angeles. 

The lawsuit claims that their son's 2005 Toyota Camry suddenly sped up and smashed into another car, killing both drivers. 

They are seeking general damages, medical expenses, lost earnings and punitive damages.
