Judge Accepts Deal In Toyota Sudden Acceleration Suit

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, Mich. (WLNS) - A judge has accepted a settlement involving the family of a 77-year-old Flint-area woman killed when her 2005 Toyota Camry slammed into a tree after alleged sudden acceleration.

Terms of the settlement approved Friday between the family of Guadalupe Alberto and the automaker aren't being released. Genesee County Judge Archie Hayman in Flint says it's been a "long road" for the family and that his prayers are with them.

Alberto's daughter, Lilia Alberto, is confirming that a payment from the settlement will be distributed among family members.

Lawyers for both sides declined to comment after the hearing. Toyota said earlier this month that it was satisfied that a mutually acceptable agreement was reached.

Guadalupe Alberto died instantly in the April 2008 crash in Flint.
