The federal jury in the Toyota liability trial in Minneapolis completed its second full day of deliberations Friday without reaching a verdict.
The six-woman, six-man jury met from 9 a.m. to 4:40 p.m. on Friday with a lunch break. It returns at 9 a.m. Monday to resume deliberations.
The jury must decide if Toyota had a defective accelerator system that was responsible for an accident in 2006 in which a 1996 Camry driven by Koua Fong Lee rear-ended an Oldsmobile Ciera, resulting in several injuries and three deaths.
The jury began deliberating midafternoon Wednesday after a three-week trial.
Lee and the families in the Ciera allege that the Camry's accelerator became stuck as the car exited eastbound Interstate 94 at Snelling Avenue in St. Paul. Toyota blames the accident on driver error by Lee, arguing that he hit the gas pedal when he should have hit the brakes.
