My wife was trying to pass another car, when she stomped down on the accelerator to pass, it stayed there and the truck started to run away with her, she kept stomping on the pedal to get it to relese but it would not. She did get it to release somehow after several tries. After she got home I investigated the problem I found that the accelerator had frayed and must have somehow hung up on the tubing surrounding the cable. She could have been killed. I hope DC will recall or do something about this.
