AS MY WIFE CAME HOW WITH MY DAUGHTER, SHE PROCEEDED TO REVERSE THE CAR INTO OUR DRIVEWAY TO PARK THE CAR IN OUR GARAGE AS SHE NORMALLY DOES EVERYDAY. IN THE DRIVEWAY WAS ALSO MY CAR WHERE IT IS PARKED EVERYDAY. AS SHE WAS PROCEEDING TO GO BACK, THE CAR ALL OF A SUDDEN ACCELERATED ON ITS OWN AND TOOK OFF. SHE TRIED TO PRESS THE BRAKE BUT TO NO AVAIL. SHE CONTINUED TO PRESS THE BRAKE, HOWEVER THE CAR WOULD NOT STOP. SHE PROCEEDED TO HIT MY CAR AND DAMAGED BOTH CARS FROM FRONT TO BACK. HER CAR ON THE PASSENGER SIDE, AND MINE ON THE DRIVER SIDE. AFTER HITTING BOTH CARS, HER CAR PROCEEDED TO GO FURTHER BACK AND CRASH INTO THE HOUSE CAUSING MAJOR DAMAGE. THAT IS WHEN THE CAR ACTUALLY STOPPED. IT WAS AT THIS TIME THAT SHE WAS ABLE TO PUT THE CAR IN PARK AND TURN THE CAR OFF. BOTH CARS AND THE HOUSE NOW NEED MAJOR REPAIRS. MY DAUGHTER WAS SITTING IN THE BACK AT THE TIME OF THE INCIDENT.
