I PULLED ONTO A STATE ROUTE AND ACCELERATED TO GET UP TO HIGHWAY SPEED. THE LIGHT I WAS APPROACHING TURNED YELLOW, SO I WENT FROM THE GAS TO THE BRAKE PEDAL. I REALIZED VERY QUICKLY I WAS NOT SLOWING DOWN NEARLY FAST ENOUGH TO STOP IN TIME AND WAS GOING TO HIT THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME IN A FEW SECONDS. I ASSUMED THE BRAKES WERE FAILING. I LOOKED DOWN TO TRY TO DOWN SHIFT THE CAR AND REALIZED THE CAR WAS RUNNING AT APPROXIMATELY 2800 RPM. I PUT MY LEFT FOOT ON THE BRAKE AND MOVED MY RIGHT FOOT BACK TO THE ACCELERATOR. I COULD FEEL THAT THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL WAS STILL DEPRESSED. I PLACED MY FOOT UNDER THE PEDAL, BUT I COULD NOT LIFT IT UP. I THEN PRESSED THE ACCELERATOR DOWN FURTHER AND RELEASED IT. THIS TIME THE PEDAL CAME BACK TO NORMAL POSITION AND I WAS ABLE TO STOP. WHEN I PULLED OVER AND LOOKED UNDER THE HOOD, THE CABLE FOR THE CRUISE CONTROL WAS NOT ATTACHED TO THE THROTTLE ARM. I TRIED REATTACHING THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE, BUT CONNECTOR WAS WORN OUT AND IT WOULD NOT STAY ATTACHED. I TUCKED THE LOOSE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE UNDER A WIRE IN ORDER TO GET HOME.
