The deadly crash of a Toyota Camry in western Utah is being blamed on a sticky gas pedal, the same problem that led the world’s largest automaker to recall the car for repairs early this year. The 2008 Camry slammed into a rock wall near the Nevada border on Nov. 5, killing the driver and a passenger. The vehicle was the subject of three recalls, most recently for an accelerator that can get stuck in the open position.The crash raised questions about Toyota Motor Corp.’s system for repairing flaws in its vehicles. Safety advocates note that the government has received dozens of customer complaints about problems continuing even after a repair.
