It’s not quite over and out for the indicted Prius motorist. Toyota say they now believe last month’s incident where the accelerator pedal jammed at speeds up to 176 km/h was caused by a loose floor mat

Both the police and Toyota Norway are waiting for the report from the NRPA (Statens vegvesen/The Norwegian Public Road Administration).

Police say they are also waiting for a verdict from their own technicians and are hoping to question the two-accident driver this week.

Lars-Erik Åroy, Toyota Norway’s Manager Director, says everything else on the car appears to be in working order otherwise, though the company won’t reveal all the details for now.

“We’re looking forward to getting all the facts, and are waiting to hear what the police and the NPRA have to say,” he tells VG.
