: the contact stated while traveling 20 mph on a dry flat road, the vehicle suddenly accelerated to 50 mph without warning. The brakes were fully applied and did not stop the vehicle. It drove through a red light, up an embankment, onto a convenience store parking lot and crashed into propane tanks that were on display in front of a store. Both front air bags deployed, and the driver sustained injuries to the face, lips, legs and abdomen. The seat belts worked properly and a police report was taken. The police impounded the vehicle for further investigation. On 09/29/06, the dealer was notified and suggested that the manufacturer be contacted. The manufacturer was contacted and an incident report was taken, along with expressing to the contact that an insurance department would call with questions. The contact noticed on the internet that there were 4 other similar incidents and that there was a recall for another model that carried the same components as the contact's vehicle.
