Frenchman Survives High-Speed Adventure

A story too incredible to be true, but it is (see The Guardian account).    This fellow was just making a little supermarket run  in his town when his car--specially adapted for the disabled--started accelerating every time he hit the brakes.  Soon he was up to 125 mph and the brakes did not work.  Did he soon crash? Hardly.  Instead he stayed on the highway for an hour, speeding for 120 miles and ending up in Belgium.  Finally he ran out of gas, before he got to fuckin' Bruges.
