What do you think caused this? I had a Pedal Commander start accelerating on me recently it was crazy! All of a sudden the check engine light came on and the Jeep started accelerating. I had to throw it in neutral and hit the brakes. I removed it right then and there. Not saying that is what happened here though. If this is a repost, my bad just delete it.

Looks to me like another case of playing stupid games...

You know the rest. 🙄

What do you tell your insurance company? What do the other Jeep owners do, use their own insurance?
If you think about it and really look at just what you can see that's a lot of money in Jeeps and Bolt on`s

They must have sent him the Steering Commander instead.

Hard to tell where this happened. Looks it might be like a Chinese license plate.

Looks like a simple case of poor driving to me. If you crash in to my parked jeep you're at fault period. Your insurance still pays. That subject has been beat to death. About the only exclusion written into most policies is competition/racing. You're still covered on dirt roads/ trails. There are numerous posters who rolled their vehicles wheeling and not only was the vehicle covered, the insurance company paid for the vehicle recovery.

There’s no way this happens to the extent in this video. Every road vehicle ever made has brakes that are much more powerful than the engine.

Literally all you have to do is slam the brakes to stop this. It’s more likely the driver panicked and as is very common, kept pushing the accelerator more thinking it was the brakes.
I agree. A firm foot on the brakes is all it takes (ask Audi).

I'd like to know how many milliseconds it took those bystanders to go from "glad to be alive" to "I'm gonna kill this guy."

The dash cam looks like it was in a 392, and the black one appears to have a 392 hood maybe?

Not necessarily. Some Toyota's had unintended acceleration events. One was an off duty police officer. Toyota now programs all cars to observe the brakes over go pedal. Does Pedal Commander over ride Toyota instructions? Does Stellantis have the same computer controls that favor brakes over acceleration?
