Average age of runaway Toyota drivers is ‘very very old’

Daily Caller reporter Aleksandra Kulczuga strikes gold and passes it along. According to the Washington Examiner, there’s a pattern among drivers who reported unintended acceleration in their Toyota:

In the 24 cases where driver age was reported or readily inferred, the drivers included those of the ages 60, 61, 63, 66, 68, 71, 72, 72, 77, 79, 83, 85, 89—and I’m leaving out the son whose age wasn’t identified, but whose 94-year-old father died as a passenger.

What does this mean?! Aleksandra points out that the median driver age is between 35 and 44. So, among many other things: old people seem to have trouble stopping their cars regardless of things like manufacturing errors, and car history could–could–be repeating itself to the detriment of Toyota.
