The statement said information is captured about vehicle speed, the accelerator's angle, gear shift position, whether the seat belt was used and the angle of the driver's seat.
If you read that SAME ARTICLE it states that Toyota has only one single laptop in North America that can read the ECU data stored about the pedal position after a crash.

Same article also states Toyota has been unwilling to cooperate on releasing the ECU data after crashes despite subpoena. So anyone driving a Toyota involved in an accident has a pretty darn good chance of claiming unintended acceleration or stuck pedal and no one is really going to be able to prove it otherwise.
