Toyota CEO Apologizes for Recall, Accidents

Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda came to Washington Wednesday to publicly apologize to Congress for safety lapses that led to the recall of 8.5 million cars. A House committee chairman said blame must be shared by both Toyota and U.S. safety regulators. Rep. Edolphus Towns, D-N.Y., chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) failed to follow through aggressively on thousands of complaints dating back a decade about sudden acceleration in Toyota vehicles.
