NEW YORK (AP) - Toyota is sending engineers to investigate a Prius that crashed into a stone wall in suburban New York last week. The driver says the car sped up on its own.

Toyota Motor Corp. spokesman Wade Hoyt says the automaker will turn over its findings to the Harrison, N.Y., police, but will not hold a press conference or share the results with the media.

He says the automaker is sending three to four engineers from its U.S. sales headquarters in Torrance, Calif., and from a regional office in West Caldwell, N.J., to examine the wrecked 2005 Prius on Wednesday.

They will be joined by investigators from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
