wow that sucks. i guess he wasnt smart enough to either install or use a fuel cut off or something to keep it from continuing on its rampage! glad no one was killed. i bet he had some people looking for him afterbanghead.gif

Man that sucks but has the idiot never heard of a fuel cut off switch!? Jesus Christ, you'd think with all the money he probably had in that car the moron would have some kind of kill switch. If I was any one of the people he rammed into I'd be more than pissed. Luckily no one was seriously injured...could have been a lot worse.

wow thats just crazy. im glad nobody was badly injured. could have been really bad. i agree on having a fuel cut off. but also why would he have not slammed it in neutral or park. i have had my throttle stick open on me once in my camaro. first thing i did was throw the car into neural then shut it off. unless it was a lenco trans or something.
