OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Closing arguments are scheduled in a case in which attorneys allege a defect in the electronics system of a Toyota Camry caused the vehicle to accelerate suddenly and crash.
An Oklahoma County jury is expected to begin deliberations in the case on Thursday.
Jean Bookout, then 76, was driving a 2005 Camry in 2007 when it crashed. She was injured and 70-year-old passenger Barbara Schwarz was killed.
Attorneys for Bookout and for Schwarz's estate maintain the accident was the result of a flaw in Toyota's electronic-throttle system.
Attorneys for Toyota dispute the claim.
The company recalled millions of vehicles worldwide after drivers reported some Toyota vehicles were accelerating unexpectedly.
