MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A jury of six men and six women has gone home for the weekend in a case alleging a 1996 Toyota Camry had a design defect that caused a fatal crash.

Jurors received the case late Wednesday afternoon and deliberated all day Thursday and Friday without reaching a verdict. They’re due to resume deliberations at the federal courthouse in Minneapolis on Monday morning.

The jurors must decide whether Toyota’s design of the 1996 Camry had a defect that was unreasonably dangerous. If they find there was a defect, they must decide if it directly caused injuries to those hurt or killed when Koua Fong Lee crashed into another car in 2006.

Lee spent 2½ years in prison before being released after reports suggested some Toyota cars had sudden acceleration problems.
