A Tampa medical office building got an unexpected elevator passenger today when a woman ran her Toyota Corolla into the office building and right up to the elevators. There have been no Florida traffic tickets issued at this point but the investigation is ongoing and criminal traffic charges are still a possibility.
The big question becomes who was at fault for the accident. Was it the 44-year-old driver or the Toyota? The car-maker has come under a lot of heat lately for sudden acceleration problems and steering issues that specifically relate to the Corolla. All that is known so far is that the driver lost control of the car, drove on a curb for 100 feet and then turned into the building where the car went 40 feet before coming to a stop. Nobody inside the building was hurt.
