A St. Paul man is getting a hearing to determine whether he deserves a new trial for a Toyota crash that killed three people.

The hearing before Ramsey County District Judge Joanne Smith is getting underway today and could last three days.  32 year-old Koua Fong Lee was convicted of criminal vehicular homicide and sentenced to eight years in prison for the 2006 crash, which killed three people and injured two others.

Lee maintains he did everything he could to stop his 1996 Camry. The defense plans to present evidence that’s emerged in recent months about problems with sudden unintended acceleration in Toyotas, and with evidence from a re-inspection of the wreckage showing Lee was trying to brake.
