sudden unintended acceleration

Driver was slowly entering parking space, while using brake when suddenly car suddenly revved up, lunged forward pushed away the car in front for a couple of meters, continued to try to get forward, hit the car to the right which hits the car on its right too. All airbag on the left and on the wheel exploded. The car finally was stopped by a tree otherwise would have been running in the water. The car remained locked! even it was in crash mode. (see enclosed picture). I'm so surprised to see so much similar complaints. It is a pity we can not see how most cases were closed with BMW NA.
