So an off duty CHP officer in CA was driving with his family today in San Diego. His car was in the shop so he was driving a rented Lexus. Anyway the car randomly floors the gas and the cop calls nine one one but before they can stop they fly off the road and explode. Apparently Lexus was already notified about the problem and they had chosen to ignore it. I think that this is outrageous everyone died! Discuss

No it floored the gas all by itself! and Lexus was already aware of the problem but just ignored it.

you should be hearing about it soon since Lexus will probably have a nice law suit on their hands.

Ummm... did he try taking the foot off the accelerator? Or applying the breaks? or steering from crashing? Or pulling the ebrake? Or turning off the car? or putting it out of gear? Or some other possible means of not dying?
