WHILE CAREFULLY PARKING MY PRIUS 2010 AT A HOSPITAL IT ACCELERATED SUDDENLY AND CRASHED OVER THE CEMENT CURB. I SAY CAREFULLY BECAUSE MY PRIUS HAD DONE THIS BEFORE BUT NOT ENOUGH DAMAGE WAS DONE TO FILE WITH INSURANCE. THERE FOLLOWED ANOTHER ACCIDENT AND ANOTHER ACCIDENT. THEN THIS EVENING WHILE DRIVING INTO MY CARPORT MY PRIUS ACCELERATED AGAIN. IT THREW MY DOG THAT WAS IN THE FRONT SEAT TO THE FLOOR BUT I WAS ABLE TO AVOID CAR DAMAGE AS I WAS GOING TO STOP. I WAS BARELY MOVING, THAT IS I STILL HAD MY FOOT ON THE ACCELERATOR,MAYBE I COULD SAY COASTING, WHEN THIS ACCELERATION SUDDENLY OCCURRED. THIS WAS THE SAME TYPE ACCELERATION THAT CAUSED ALL THE PRIOR ACCIDENTS. I HAVE REPORTED THIS TO TOYOTA... AND NOW YOU. HOPEFULLY YOU WILL HELP ME. MY PRIUS IS IN THE CARPORT. IT HAS NOT BEEN MOVED. HOWEVER, IT IS MY ONLY TRANSPORTATION. MY PRIUS' LATEST HAPPENING, BEFORE THE ONE JUST STATED, THE HYBRID SYSTEM QUIT WORKING DURING RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC ON THE INTERSTATE NEAR A BUSY INTERSECTION. THIS WAS REPAIRED BEFORE TOYOTA SENT SOME ONE TO INVESTIGATE THE PRIOR ACCIDENTS. IF MORE INFORMATION IS NEEDED JUST LET ME KNOW. THIS PRIUS ALSO HAD A BATTERY REPLACED SHORTLY AFTER IT WAS PURCHASED AS A NEW VEHICLE. THIS PRIUS HAS WHEEL RIM SCRATCHES.
