ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Highway Patrol says it is looking at the role of sudden acceleration in a car crash into a day care center that killed a 4-year-old girl.

Agency spokeswoman Kim Montes said Friday that it is one of the many potential factors being considered.

According to troopers, Albert Campbell was in a Toyota Solara preparing to turn right onto the private drive of a KinderCare when a Dodge Durango driven by Robert Corchado rear-ended the car. The impact propelled the Solara into the day care building.

Corchado is charged with fleeing the scene of a fatal crash.

Toyota Motor Corp. has recalled millions of vehicles worldwide after drivers reported some Toyota vehicles were surging unexpectedly. It already has agreed to pay $1 billion in lawsuits filed in federal courts.
