Subaru "stuck accelerator"


Recommended Posts

This call came in from Local PD as a single vehicle crash. I arrived on scene in our Dodge 5500 MPL40 wrecker. Once I did I called for a flatbed to come to the scene. The driver was parking the vehicle and said the accelerator stuck. He traveled over a parking curb and into a pine tree. Security video showed the vehicle started up the tree until the tree was uprooted. The vehicle continued through some bushes and came to rest straddling some curbing. We used our wrecker to recovery the vehicle and it was loaded on our our flatbed. The flatbed took the vehicle to the shop to unload. I remained on scene with the wrecker and started to pull out the damaged trees and bushes. Our cleanup truck and trailer came to the scene with chainsaws and power broom. Our flatbed returned to collect the debris. We all worked at getting things cleaned up. The landscaping company that handles that property is going to replant bushes and all this spring. We were paid in full by Erie Ins. They even paid us to transport the vehicle 50 miles to a Subaru dealer in Harrisburg for further investigation into the "stuck throttle"
