I WAS DRIVING HOME FROM WORK ON THE MORNING OF AUGUST 16TH, 2008 WHEN MY 2007 PRIUS BEGAN TO HYDROPLANE. I STRUCK THE LEFT GUARDRAIL , SPUN RIGHT AND THEN THE CAR CATAPULTED ACROSS THE INTERSTATE. I HIT A CONCRETE BARRIER AND THE CAR THEN ROLLED ONTO ITS LEFT DRIVER SIDE AND SKIDDED MAYBE 100'. I CHALKED IT UP TO THE ROADS BEING WET BUT THE ODD THING WAS THAT THE CAR ACCELERATED ONCE I HIT THE LEFT GUARD RAIL AND STARTED TO CROSS OVER THE INTERSTATE. AT THIS POINT, THE BRAKES AND STEERING WOULD NOT WORK. I CRASHED HEAD ON INTO THE CONCRETE BARRIER ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE INTERSTATE. MY STORY SOUNDS VERY MUCH LIKE SOME OF THE POSTS I HAVE READ. IT IS FRIGHTENING THAT SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE EXPERIENCED THE SAME ORDEAL AND THAT TOYOTA CONTINUES TO DENY IT AND BLAME IT ON THE FLOOR MATS!
