  • miles
Consumer was driving on highway, at approx. 65-70 mph on dry surface when accelerator cable popped out of its bracket, causing vehicle to go to full throttle and exceed speeds of 90 mph. Driver started to apply brakes, it took about1 1/2 to 2 miles before vehicle could slow down, and then shifted to neutral. Due to the excessive braking, flames started coming out of front brakes.
