BANZAI7 NEWS--It was like an action movie. NBC San Diego is reporting that California Highway Patrol officers today used their patrol car to be the brakes for a runaway Toyota Prius on Interstate 8.
CHP spokesman Eric Estrada said that the Prius, driven by a well known country western band, "The Good Old Boys", was headed eastbound at high speed with a stuck accelerator. He said officers moved the cruiser in front of the Prius and used the CHP car's brakes to bring it to a stop.
Mr. Toyoda announced that he has enlisted two well known automotive safety experts, Jake and Elwood Blues, to assist it in wectifying (that's rectifying) Toyota's design headaches.
