On 9/30/18 while parking the car at our cabin in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State the car accelerated from idle to full throttle when the steering wheel was turned to the right. Within a distance of approx.
22 ft. the car launched itself towards a 12 ft. x 20 ft. outbuilding and 8' wood deck.
It hit a temporary wood step and knocked it down then hit the edge of the deck which is 18 inches above grade. The bumper blew up and the car jumped onto the deck and ran into the front of the wood framed outbuilding penetrating about 1 ft. deep. The reason it stopped is three fold: 1st, it got high centered on the edge of the deck; 2nd, the driver, my wife had been aggressively standing on the brake pedal and applying the parking brake: 3rd she was able to hit the stop button.
The total distance the car traveled during this terrifying event was approx. 31 ft. It should be noted that despite two (2) significant impacts, hitting the edge of the deck initially and hitting the building secondly, the airbag did not deploy. Presently (10/1/18) a tow truck is in route, the car is still on the deck with the front end sticking into the outbuilding.
It took a day or so to sort out insurance and the accident happened in a remote location. Most of the bumper along with some other parts are pinned under the car.
An internet search revealed approx. 100 other similar "unintended" Subaru acceleration accidents.
