(CNN) - Toyota has been found at fault in a 2007 crash that killed one woman and injured another in Oklahoma.

A jury ordered the carmaker to pay $1.5 million to the driver of the car, Jean Bookout, and another $1.5 million to the family of Barbara Schwarz, the passenger who was killed.

The incident is one of more than 700 unintended acceleration cases Toyota is facing.

The company has already agreed to pay $1.1 billion to settle a class-action lawsuit.

But that suit applies to economic damages, it does not cover cases involving personal injury or death.
