Louisville, KY—A single-vehicle crash involving a recalled 2010 Toyota Camry resulted in the hospitalization of four of the car’s occupants on Saturday night, January 30, 2010. The men in the vehicle reported they had no idea about the recall prior to the car wreck, according to information provided by WAVE3.com.

A Toyota Camry, driven by a Louisville man, identified as Todd Allen, was reportedly “pulling into a parking spot off Blue Lick and Preston in Okolona Saturday night when suddenly, for no reason at all, the car took off at high speed”, according to the Paula Allen, the motorist’s wife. The driver allegedly attempted to brake but was incapable of doing so, resulting in the violent car crash. The 2010 Toyota Camry he was driving, along with seven other models, were recalled due to defective gas pedals less than two weeks ago.

Emergency medical services (EMS) crews allegedly transported four of the vehicles occupants to University Hospital to be treated for the injuries they suffered in the motor vehicle accident. Todd Allen was taken to the intensive care unit of the hospital allegedly lacking feeling in his legs. It was noted that he might have sustained a spinal cord injury in the wreck. Officials from the Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) have not yet issued a formal accident report, however, they did confirm its occurrence.
