Verdict of $14,062,483.02 affirmed against Toyota for design defect

Kuoa Fong Lee was imprisoned for a crime he did not commit

"Mr. Lee's vehicle experienced sudden unintended acceleration caused by a design defect in Toyota's fleet. While Toyota had kept consumers and the public in the dark about prior incidents of sudden unintended acceleration, Mr. Lee was nonetheless forced to spend over two years in prison, until a new trial was granted to prove that Toyota's design defect was the true cause of the deadly accident. Upon this showing the State had no other recourse but to drop all charges against Mr. Lee. "

Question: How many other unknown people are languishing in prison on account of misbehaving vehicles?
