If the incident of James Sikes’ runaway Prius in San Diego wasn’t already giving Toyota a headache, another Prius sped out of control in New York causing minor injuries to the driver. Harrison Police said a woman smashed into a stone wall this morning because of a stuck accelerator in a Toyota Prius.
The car “shot” across the street smashing into a stone wall, Chief Anthony Marraccini said. The driver, a 56-year-old woman suffered “non-life threatening” injuries.
Marraccini said that the pedal being stuck in the floor mat has been ruled out as a cause since the 2005 model year Prius had already taken action by tying the mat to the seat base with plastic ties.
The car was taken to police headquarters while the driver was being taken care of at White Plains Hospital Center.
