LOOK: SUV crashes into bank

Woman suffers minor injuries


It's still unclear what caused a driver in Mississauga to lose control of their vehicle and crash into a bank at Meadowvale Town Centre, north of Winston Churchill and Brittannia.

Police say it happened around 3:30 a.m. Friday morning and as a result a woman at an ATM suffered minor injuries.

The SUV broke through part of a wall and shattered glass windows and those in the SUV were trapped for a time and had to be rescued.

It's not known yet if this was a case of driver error, a medical condition, or something else.

    This has all the earmarks of electronicall-induced unintended acceleration. Read "Toyota's killer firmware: Bad design and its consequences." Embedded systems expert Michael Barr found the following:

    * Toyota's electronic throttle control system (ETCS) source code is of unreasonable quality.

    * Toyota's source code is defective and contains bugs, including bugs that can cause unintended acceleration (UA)

    * Code-quality metrics predict presence of additional bugs.

    * Toyota's fail safes are defective and inadequate (referring to them as a 'house of cards' safety architecture).

    * Misbehaviours of Toyota's ETCS are a cause of UA.

    I've been blogging about the electronics issue. Search "Beware of Toyota. Their next victim may be YOU..."
