backing up the car, brakes failed and engine accelerated

While backing out of my garage in the morning, I noticed a car parked on the side of the driveway and I apply the brake. The brakes completely failed to engage, went to locked position, and the engine started accelerating. The car hit a palm tree and the neighbors fence very bad with very strong impact and the car had extensive rear and side damage. Suddenly the brakes were like stepping on a hard rock and the engine accelerated very quickly. I am seriously pursuing this with BMW and insurance company is also investigating this. I am pretty sure that this is a serious issue of suddenly locked up brakes and self acceleration for a 2012 BMW 335i (rear gear).Car was serviced just two months ago at the local BMW dealership. I will be doing everything to get this further investigated.
