Toyota announces it has settled a wrongful death lawsuit following a fatal crash in Utah in 2010 involving sudden, unintended acceleration.

The case was brought by the family of Paul Van Alfen and Charlene Jones Lloyd, who were killed when their Toyota Camry crashed into a wall.

Toyota did not disclose the size of the settlement.

It is thought the case marks the first of hundreds of pending wrongful death and injury lawsuits.

Last month Toyota agreed to pay an estimated $1.1 billion to settle hundreds of lawsuits from other US car-owners, who were claiming economic losses because of safety changes needed for their vehicles.

Since 2009, Toyota has recalled more than 14 million vehicles worldwide over problems with accelerator pedals becoming trapped under floor mats.

Toyota said it sympathized with anyone in an accident involving one of its vehicles, but said it stood behind the safety and integrity of its electronic throttle control system.

“We are satisfied that both parties reached a mutually acceptable agreement to settle this case,” a company statement said of the most recent agreement.

“While Toyota may decide from time to time to settle select cases, we will have a number of other opportunities to defend our product at trial in multidistrict litigation and other legal venues.

“We are confident the evidence will confirm what millions of Toyota drivers prove every day: that they can depend upon their vehicles to provide safe, reliable transportation.”

Jenni Rivera was in the final states of buying the Learjet plane which claimed her life, a report revealed today.

Jenni Rivera, who was killed in Mexico on Sunday night after her private jet went down, was buying the private jet from business executive Christian E. Esquino Nunez.

Christian E. Esquino Nunez is wanted for questioning regarding his ties to the plane, and has been convicted of drug-trafficking and counterfeiting government inspection stamps.

ABC News exclusively reported that Christian E. Esquino Nunez could be wanted for questioning with Mexican authorities, as well as investigators with the National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB) regarding the fatal crash.

The Learjet 25 belongs to Starwood Management, which is, according to records, owned by Christian E. Esquino Nunez.

According to ABC News, Christian E. Esquino Nunez and his partner Lance Z. Ricotta were convicted of creating false logbooks for six aircrafts they bought from the Mexican government and sold in the U.S.

RadarOnline.com reports that Christian E. Esquino Nunez also has ties to a Tijuana drug cartel, and has also been accused of trying to sneak the son of late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi into Mexico.

Court records show that Christian E. Esquino Nunez obtained details from aircrafts and forged details so as to mark up aircraft prices, thinking the models had fewer miles on them or had more maintenance work than they actually had.

Christian E. Esquino Nunez’s current whereabouts are unknown.

The plane carrying Jenni Rivera plunged from more than 28,000 feet and hit the ground in a nose-dive at more than 600 miles an hour, Mexico’s top transportation official says.
