    What do they mean by “older”? 1985 Toyotas are very different than 99 Toyotas, and both are older.

    This was my sister killed, Suzanne Segura Herndon do you have any other information.

    I am sorry for your loss. I have no information at all.

    I live not far from there, and as a concerned community member was asking for clarification. Cars tend to change very drastically throughout the years so for example an “Older” 86 Toyota Camry is about 75% as long as a “older” 99 Camry, and bears no resemblance.

    Dear public, please help my little sister. She loved animals and would not let any cat or dog go homeless , and did not deserve to die.

    Her Brother
