AZ Driver Claims Runaway Prius Almost Killed a Man

by Administrator 13. April 2010 02:39

A driver in Valley, Arizona claims his runaway Prius nearly killed a man last month. 

 

"It was one of the scariest incidents I have ever been in," Chuck Schmeiser said. He is speaking of an incident that occurred last month in his two-year-old Toyota Prius.  While trying to park in a field at a music festival, Schmeiser says his Prius shot forward, struck a parking lot attendant, and veered out of control over a dirt embankment. "It happened so fast. It was instantaneous. There was no advance warning whatsoever," he said.

 

"M foot was on the brake to stop the car when it started to surge. All I did was press the brake as hard as I could," Schmeiser said. "That brake did not stop the car."

 

Schmeiser had his car towed to a dealership. A specialist was brought in to examine the vehicle and determined the incident occurred due to driver error. Schmeiser says he did nothing wrong. He says he was skeptical of other reports of runaway cars, but the incident changed his mind. 

 

"We had talked about it, and said they must be doing something wrong... and until it happens to you, you realize they weren't doing anything wrong, it's the car."

Lake Havasu Woman Struck, Killed, While Laying in Roadway

by Administrator 13. April 2010 02:21

An unidentified woman from Lake Havasu City died early Sunday morning after she was struck by a vehicle on North Kiowa Boulevard. 

 

According to officials with the Lake Havasu City Police Department, the woman and  a man were arguing somewhere near the roadway shortly before 2:00 a.m Sunday.   Lake Havasu City police sergeant Joe Harrold said "the female was laying in the westbound traffic lane of North Kiowa Boulevard." Officers say they do not know why the woman was laying in the street, but the accident remains under investigation. 

 

Harrold said 27 year-old John Lindsay was traveling westbound on North Kiowa Boulevard in his 1992 Buick at the time of the accident. "Mr. Lindsay's vehicle approached the area, and the female suddenly sat up - at which time Mr. Lindsay realized it was a person and attempted to brake and swerve to avoid her," Harrold said. "Alcohol was not a factor with the driver. There were no signs of impairment or of mechanical defects with the vehicle."

 

Lindsay's left front bumper struck the woman and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

by Administrator 22. December 2009 03:06

Arizona DPS authorities say that a 29 year-old woman from Gilbert is responsible for a "hit-and-run spree" that caused damage to four vehicles on I-10. The woman is suspected of being intoxicated during the event, and has been charged with driving while impaired and leaving the scene of an accident.
