Runaway Toyotas: Lawyer Demands New Trial for Imprisoned Driver of Camry in Fatal Crash

In an interview with ABC News last month, Bridgett Trice, the mother of Devyn Bolton, said, "I do think there's something to it, because we're finding out that there's other cases that are similar to what happened with Mr. Lee's car. There is a terrible wrong done here and there is an innocent man in prison."

"In my heart, the way I feel now, it wasn't his fault," said Quincy Adams, the sole survivor of the crash.

Even a juror from Lee's trial is now questioning whether Lee was responsible for the crash. Danny Buechler of St. Paul told the St. Paul Pioneer-Press that he would like to see Lee released from prison. "I hope he gets mercy," said Buechler.

Toyota's recent safety recalls did not include Lee's Camry, although Toyota did recall select 1996 Camrys for a possible cruise control defect that was linked to sudden acceleration. It has not yet been determined if Lee's car was a part of that recall.

Toyota spokesman Brian Lyons said he thought it would be "inappropriate" for the company to comment on the case.
