You left out, regarding Fred Barry, that he passed away back in 2003 due to complications from a stroke. I remember where I was and what I was doing when I heard the news. I was folding clothes in my grandmother's laundry room.

I wept.

Neato, you are right. Larry was voiced by the great Lorenzo Music (also the original voice of Peter Venkman on The Real Ghostbusters, the greatest cartoon of all time).

What a terrible thing to happen.

When I was a stupid college kid, knowing very little about cars (then as now), my 1991 Honda did this same thing - rapid, unstoppable acceleration. (Turns out the shop I'd had the brakes fixed at somehow screwed something up.)

Being an idiot, I didn't know what was happening. My girlfriend at the time was in the car with me and started screaming. So I put the car in neutral, hit the brake, turned the car off, and within short order I was safely in the breakdown lane.

It's a real shame the guy in this 911 call didn't make it. I don't blame the guy for anything but it isn't hard to get your car to stop moving even if it doesn't want to stop. You just have to remind the car who its master is.

(To the guy who mentioned driving a manual - I drove a stick in college for awhile. After replacing my 4th clutch in a year and a half I decided "I'm not doing this right" and switched to an automatic.)
