SUV driver apparently claims that he could not get his Expedition out of cruise control.
He could not shift into NEUTRAL or turn the key off. (His shift lever is on the post, where I prefer mine to the “cool” console shift lever location.)
Driver called 9-1-1.
A police officer caught up to him and slowed in front of the “runaway” SUV and slowed and stopped it.
Would an accelerating engine not allow power brakes to function well enough?
Would an accelerating engine prevent shifting into neutral or being unable to turn ignition off? I would turn key only enough to stop engine, not lock the steering wheel.
