problem #1

Feb 132004

Alero 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
The accelerator (throttle) got stuck while my daughter was driving approx. 45 miles per hour and caused the car to run fast causing her not to be able to stop at a intersection sending the vehicle over a ditch and hurting her and the passenger. We have police report and pictures, no other car was involved.
