The contact owns a 2004 Pontiac Montana. The contact stated that on April 6, 2010, while she was driving approximately 40 mph, the vehicle suddenly accelerated to about 70 mph.

: the contact stated while the vehicle was in neutral, the throttle engaged and the vehicle accelerated. The contact shifted the gear into reverse and backed into a tree to get the vehicle to stop. The vehicle did not sustain any damage and the incident happened on private property, and therefore no police were alerted. The vehicle is at the dealership under going inspection.
