After coming to a stop on our highway ramp. I had intended to make a right turn. Before I took my foot off the brake my car accelerated causing my back tires to lock and screech. I was unable to turn the steering wheel toward the right so that I could remain on the two lane road. My car pulled to the left and I slammed into the medium. My car came to a complete stop but was still running. I turned off the medium and continued home. Shortly after I heard thumping noise followed by louder thumping and my entire dash board lit except for the check engine light and the wrench. I pulled my car to the side to find I had two blown front tires, my bumper was broken and my driver side back tire went flat waiting on a tow. All my years driving I have never experienced an unintentional acceleration of a vehicle and pray that myself or granddaughter never have to again.

Went to go to lunch today and cranked the car up and it started and no lights came on or radio. Started to back out and there was no steering. Turned off the car and restarted it and the radio and lights came on but servicetrac light still was on dash. Called Ford and they said it was a steering fault but to still drive it and bring it in on Wednesday that it was safe to drive. Um I am not an idiot but that does not seem safe to drive if the steering goes out. Light went off after I left work and all is working for now.

The steering assist, electric power steering, had a "fault" and the car would not start/crank. Before this happened the steering was strange, it was like there were string winds when driving on the highway, the car would sway side to side.
