News 8 has confirmed that a sticking accelerator is being investigated as one possible cause of a crash in Southlake in December that killed four people driving in a Toyota Avalon.
Recently, Toyota issued an extensive recall of close to 3 million vehicles for that very reason.
The company did not reference the December 26 Southlake crash in its announcement, but Southlake police said they have not ruled out the possibility of a stuck accelerator.
The victims in the Southlake crash were in a 2008 Toyota Avalon. The sedan went through an intersection, crashed into a metal fence, hit a tree, and landed upside-down in a pond on the grounds of a mansion.
The list of recalled vehicles include popular Toyota models like the RAV4, Corolla, Matrix, Avalon, Camry, Highlander, Tundra and Sequoia.
