On September 12 2014 My Wife Was Pulling Into A Parking Space At Her Doctor’s Office. The Space Include A Stop Curb And It Faced A Four Lane Street. As She Pulled Into The Space, She Braked To Avoid Contacting The Curb And Was About To Shift Into Park When The Car Suddenly Accelerated. The Car Jumped The Parking Curb And Then Another Curb And Entered A Grassy Area (approximately 10 Ft Wide. The Car Continued To Accelerate And Jumped Another Curb And Landed In A 4 Lane Street. She Continued To Apply The Brakes While The Car Continued To Accelerate Across The Street. She Was Headed Toward Another Curb And Grassy Area And A Downhill Slope Followed By A Meineke Repair Business. Not Wanting To Go Down The Hill And Into The Building, She Turned The Car To The Right But Not In Time To Avoid Entering The Second Grassy Area. She Was Now Traveling Parallel To The Meineke Building And Side Swiped Two Small Trees, And Was Headed Toward A Very Busy Rush Hour Street. To Avoid Accelerating Into This Street, She Decided To Try Shifting The Car Into Neutral. She Looked Down To Find The Neutral Gear, And Just As She Looked Up, She Crashed Head-on Into Another Tree. The Air Bags Did Not Deploy But The Seat Belts Saved Her. The Car Was Significantly Damaged To The Drivers Side Front Where She Hit The Tree And To The Side Of The Car Where She Side Swiped The Two Trees. The Meineke Employees Called 911 And A Detective Took Her To Her Doctor’s Office For Treatment. She Injured Her Ribs And Back And Continues To Receive Treatment. I’m Convinced This Is A Software Problem And I Am Attempting To Resolve This With toyota But Hold Out Little Hope. It Needs To Be Fixed Before There Are Additional Injuries Or Loss Of Life. My Wife Could Have Died If The Car Had Made It To The Very Busy Street.
