A Florida driver was chased down an Interstate for nearly 40 miles, after he called the emergency services claiming that the accelerator pedal was stuck to the floor.
Joseph Cooper, aged 28 from Palm Coast, called 911 to inform an operator 'my gas pedal is stuck'. He reached speeds of 95mph on the I-95 freeway. Suggestions from emergency operators to turn the vehicle off or shift into neutral were not heeded, with Cooper saying 'I can't, ma'am, I tried that already. I'm trying to hold on to the wheel and talk to you at the same time."
