New Hampshire Car Accident Involving a Toyota SUV is Under Review
A New Hampshire car accident involving a Toyota sport utility vehicle (SUV) that claimed the lives of four people is under review by the government. The incident took place last October in the town of Peterborough.
The incident that involved two vehicles was caused by a Toyota Highlander SUV that reportedly sped up and crossed the road and slammed into another vehicle head-on. The collision left four people dead.
The driver of the Toyota was identified as Harvard professor Stephen Lagakos. He was killed in the accident along with two other people traveling in his vehicle. The driver of the second vehicle also lost their life as a result of the collision.
Investigators from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently announced that they will be investigating the fatal accident. The NHTSA is trying to determine if the recent Toyota pedal problems played a role in the wreck.
Toyota was recently forced to recall millions of cars for potential problems with sticking gas pedals.
“I just want closure for my family and myself,” said the victim’s wife, Colleen Krause.
This was a terrible accident and our thoughts and condolences go out to all of those who have been affected by this tragedy.
