The contact owns a 2009 Acura MDX. The contact stated that while reversing, the brake pedal was depressed as the vehicle suddenly accelerated causing the contact to crash into a pole. The contact placed the vehicle into drive and the vehicle proceeded to accelerate, and then crashed into a building. A police report was filed and there were no injuries reported.

While driving on the brooklyn-queens expressway (I 278 E)at a high rate of speed the car stalled nearly causing an accident, truck and tractor trailers came barreling down towards my stalled vehicle and abruptly changing lanes to avoid crashing into my car. I dialed 911 and the nypd highway unit sent a towtruck immediately to avoid accidents (I was petrified waiting for the tow) the dealer identified a throttle failure, replaced the throttle again for the second time.
