Testimony of Toyota driver who 'lost all control'


Toyota drivers in the US have been giving evidence at a US government hearing into the acceleration faults with some of the company's vehicles.

Rhonda Smith from Tennessee became emotional as she read a statement regarding the incident in her Lexus in 2006.

She told the hearing, "I lost all control of the vehicle... I put it into reverse, and it remains in reverse as the car speeds to over 100mph".
