Woman covers 59 Miles in 35 Minutes with a stuck accelerator
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An Iowa woman whose accelerator got stuck as she drove up Interstate 35 in Missouri managed to control the vehicle even as speeds topped 110 mph and she was forced to the median several times to avoid other drivers, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said....

Osceola she was told to lift up the accelerator and push on the brake.

"And so I did that, and it slammed me from 119 mph to like nothing," she said.....

... Highway Patrol's headquarters in Jefferson City — told her to do, including trying to shift the vehicle into neutral. The vehicle had a "proximity key," Lyon said, which allows someone to start the car without a real key when they're close enough to it.

Heard also that the car was inspected immediately afterward and nothing unusual was found.

35 minutes is an awful long time to panic and have the presence of mind to call 911 but not try the maneuver that the highway patrol eventually suggested (lift the accelerator and press on the brake)

Re: Woman covers 59 Miles in 35 Minutes with a stuck accelerator
Ok I understand a stuck accelerator last year in my toyota my floor mat was caught on my accelerator I was on a back country road, I could feel the mat was stuck and there was nothing I could do. So as the car was increasing in speed I hit the breaks and the emergency brake at the same time. My car stopped no harm done and later that week I got a recall letter from Toyota, although I am not sure what the issue was with her car it seems she was too busy on the phone to use critical thinking skills.

Good reflex. I've had the situation happen once also. It was a little basketball rolling around the floor that wedged between the pedal and the wall.

I lifted the pedal and popped with one foot and popped it out with the other. Took two seconds.

I just can't imagine going duhr for 35 minutes a 110 mph.

Usually adrenaline will kick in your thinking and reaction skills.
She used them to call 911 instead.

She was a woman, she wouldnt know how. lol.

Im serious that a emergency driving course should be required of everyone

How to check proper inflation of tires to prevent tire failure. How to check battery connections for corrosion so you arent stuck in the road.

How to make it to a exit ramp if possible instead of parking off to the side of a busy interstate so someone gets hit.

How to drive defensively. How to shift to neutral, etc..

I dont know how some people get a drivers license in the first place..

So true.

The video shows her responding that she already tried to move the shifter into neutral but "it wouldn't move"

On that I call Bullshit. Oh you tried once? How about you try again!

Again, no mechanical abnormalities were found. That shifter would have moved.

Re: Woman covers 59 Miles in 35 Minutes with a stuck accelerator
Accelerator stuck down.
Gearbox stuck in drive.
Off switch not working?

What are the odds of all three things happening at the same time?

Once you have worked that out, then multiply them odds by the chances of everything being found to be in working order once the car had stopped.

After dong the calculations, I came up with the answer;




Bullshit!

And the police praised this persons driving abilities? That's bullshit X2

If police and highway patrol have to intervene and nothing is wrong with the car, they need to charge her with reckless driving and order her to pay fines for the rescue and make her take Drivers Ed. Maybe take away her drivers licence for a year on top of it

It pisses me off. She could have killed a lot of people and children. I have to share the road with people like this, makes me mad.

I was coming to a light that was red with othere cars already stopped and insted of pushing on the brake and the clutch pedal I pushed on the break and the gas pedal. Since the car was revving and not stopping ..in my panic mode I pushed harder on the gas pedal thinking it was the brake and the brake was the clutch!
