Barry Jordan blames Toyota for the wreck that caused the death of an 11-year-old girl.
A mentally ill Scottsdale man police say is responsible for a deadly car wreck that left an 11-year-old girl dead, and several others injured, was ranting and raving about Jesus and Satan following the crash. Then, during his initial appearance in front of a judge, he shifted the blame to Toyota.

Barry Thomas Jordan, 46, made his initial court appearance this morning, at which he told the judge he needed to speak with a "Toyota expert" about the gas pedal on the 2007 pickup truck he allegedly plowed into a 1999 Honda carrying the victims.

"Toyota told me that there was no reason to bring the vehicle in and I think there may be a problem,"Jordan told the judge in his initial appearance, which you can see below.


Court records obtained by New Times indicate the problem was more with Jordan's erratic driving than with the vehicle itself.

About 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Jordan was seen running several red lights while driving through both Scottsdale and Phoenix while hauling a fully loaded cargo trailer behind his truck.

If there had been a problem with the gas pedal, there's a simple solution: put it in neutral.

Jordan, however, didn't do that. He continued to blow through red lights and driving into opposing traffic lanes.

When he got to the intersection of East Cactus Road and Paradise Village Parkway, he collided with the Honda being driven by the victims.

One victim was rushed to the hospital with bleeding to the brain and broken ribs, while another suffered a head injury after being ejected from the vehicle. The 11-year-old girl was pronounced dead at the scene.

Following the wreck, Jordan's car came to an uncontrolled stop after driving over a raised concrete median. Jordan jumped from the car and began "yelling about Jesus and Satan," before running into a nearby parking lot.

Once in the parking lot, Jordan grabbed a woman before being detained by a male passerby.

Jordan's been charged with one count of manslaughter for the death of the girl, two counts of aggravated assault, and two counts of endangerment. His next court appearance is scheduled for February 28.

This piece of shit is Sam Gavin's (CO OWNER OF THE PHOENIX SUNS) buddy. Jordan is / was a real estate agent and he and Garvin used to pal around at the Diamondback Games. I've seen them together a least a dozen times. Listen to court video. The wealthy friend Jordan references is Garvin. You are who you associate with.

James K.,I appreciate the follow up on this story. I just read in the AZ. Republic about the tragedy a family endured who had come back to Phx. from Illinois 24 hours before the wreck in Paradise Valley.And I can guess he's going to use the good old "The Devil Made Me Do It" defense at trial.

@alehound, I was thinking much the same. Tweak, tweak, tweak. I read another report where Jordan apparently was concerned about his own injury, but didn't seem worried about the dead girl or her family. I have to think the judge probably didn't care much about his personal injury situation.
