Remember: Tyrene Livingston, gone in a 2007 Yaris

Beautiful Tyrene is gone away.

Description of Tyrene Livingston's Fatal Toyota Accident

Tyrene Livingston purchased a 2007 Toyota Yaris unaware of its hidden safety defects. She was a safe driver with an excellent driving record.
Four days prior to the fatal accident, Tyrene brought her Yaris to a Toyota dealership and complained of problems with the vehicle, including what she perceived to be issues with braking. The vehicle was inspected and tested, and Tyrene was assured that nothing was wrong.
On October 26, 2007, at approximately 8:45 a.m., Tyrene, wearing her seat belt, was driving to her teaching internship at a local high school. She was driving eastbound on U.S. Route 30 in East Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at a safe rate of speed. As she traveled down the highway, the Yaris suddenly accelerated out of control and Tyrene was unable to stop the vehicle by braking. The Yaris crossed four lanes of the highway at a high rate of speed, went over a curb, crashed through a guardrail, went down an embankment, and landed into trees, resulting in Tyrene's death.
