Good old unintended acceleration, the preferred mode of driving for the mythical overzealous staffer.

Go ahead, blame the car, as if it magically set itself to full throttle and somehow disabled the brakes, which are not, at their very core, controlled by electronics or anything more complex fluid pressure. The chances of both things happening at once, then mysteriously correcting themselves after the crash are, well, zero. Not to mention that there's no car on earth, including the 1200 horsepower Bugatti Veyron, that can overpower its own brakes.

But go ahead, blame the car, try to sue GM, spend a ton of money, all so you don't have to feel like an idiot for being too old/stupid/distracted to know which pedal you're stomping on.

I like the fact that TFA actually includes a pic which makes it clear how the car ended up where it did.
