ON MARCH 4TH 2015 AT 8:00 AM, MY WIFE WAS TRYING TO CHANGE A PARKING SPOT INTO ANOTHER ABOUT 50 FEET AWAY IN THE SAME CHURCH PARKING LOT. SHE STARTED THE ENGINE AND THE CAR WAS PUT ON DRIVE. WITHIN A FRACTION OF A SECOND, THE CAR ACCELERATED BEYOND CONTROL. SHE COULD NOT STEER OR STOP THE CAR. THE CAR JUMPED A CURB, HIT A LIGHT POOL AND LANDED ON A GRASSY AREA. TIRE MARKS REVEAL THAT THE CAR EXPERIENCED A SUDDEN RUSH OF ACCELERATION BEYOND CONTROL -++UNINTENDED ACCELERATION.-+¥ MY WIFE IS STILL UNDER DOCTOR-++S OBSERVATION. THE CAR FRONT RIGHT; BUMPER, TIRE, FENDER, DOOR, "A" PILLAR, AND OTHER PARTS WERE DAMAGED. THE CAR WAS TOWED TO DAYTONA TOYOTA AND IS STILL THERE SINCE MARCH 4TH 2015.
