NEW YORK - July 13, 2010: Helen Chernikoff writing for Reuters reported that an analysis of dozens of data recorders from Toyota Motor Corp vehicles involved in accidents blamed on sudden acceleration suggest that some drivers were at fault, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Citing people familiar with the unreleased results of tests conducted by the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Journal said some drivers who said their Toyotas or Lexuses surged out of control might have pushed the accelerator when they meant to brake.
