I WAS AT THE WHEEL OF MY 2005 HONDA ACCORD, SLOWLY EASING IT IN TO A PARKING SPOT IN A PUBLIC PARKING GARAGE WHEN THE CAR SUDDENLY LURCHED FORWARD, HITTING THE CONCRETE WALL. I PUT MY FOOT FIRMLY ON THE BRAKE, PUT THE CAR INTO REVERSE AND ATTEMPTED TO BACK THE CAR UP A FEW INCHES TO SEE WHAT DAMAGE HAD BEEN DONE. WHEN I LIFTED MY FOOT FROM THE BRAKE, THE CAR SUDDENLY AND UNCONTROLLABLY ACCELERATED BACKWARDS AT A RAPID RATE OF SPEED AND CRASHED INTO A CONCRETE WALL ABOUT 30 FEET BEHIND THE SPOT. THE LEFT REAR OF THE CAR WAS CRUSHED INWARD ABOUT TWO FEET, SUBSTANTIAL DAMAGE WAS DONE TO THE ENTIRE REAR, THE SIDE AIRBAG DEPLOYED, AND I SUSTAINED A NUMBER OF INJURIES WHICH HAVE PREVENTED ME FROM RETURNING TO WORK THREE WEEKS AFTER THE EVENT. MY INSURANCE COMPANY, STATE FARM, TOTALED THE CAR AND IS RETAINING IT FOR INVESTIGATION.
