Car plunges into sea

The SUV which Stephen Arthur was driving ended up on its roof in the water

A St Philip man escaped serious injury this afternoon after his SUV ended up upside down in the waters off Miami beach, Oistins, Christ Church.

According to reports, Stephen Arthur of Six Roads, St Philip was in his SUV, when it suddenly accelerated and struck a car, before plunging into the waters just behind the Oistins Bus Terminal.

He was rescued from the vehicle by a passerby who saw the incident. Arthur is said to have received minor injuries and was also treated for shock at the nearby Randall Phillips Polyclinic

    If what is said is true ,(SUV suddenly accelerated before plunging into sea), is a case of a throttle body needed servicing so throttle plate stuck………. It is good that the driver is ok .

    What was the make, model, & model year of this vehicle? Or is that kept out of the media intentionally by police?

    Jeep vehicles are WELL-KNOWN in terms of sudden unintended acceleration. Ask ANY car wash business. As a matter of fact, the Car Wash Association has a formal LIST of most likely vehicles to do this. Jeeps often TAKE OFF while inside these car washes. Carol lives on a lake and the humid conditions may well be connected.

    There’s a BIG hidden secret in the auto industry…it’s called ELECTRONIC sudden unintended acceleration! I know…you thought that was just about FLOOR MATS and sticky pedals, or “driver error,” right? That’s certainly what TOYOTA would like you to continue to believe, BUT DON’T!

    These ultra-complex new engines are completely computer driven. Software is needed to control the throttle system. You THINK you are giving gas when you press the accelerator, but you are only SUGGESTING this to the computer. In electronic SUA cases, the throttle software may be glitch-prone and NOT do as you wish.

    What happens then? Well, the glitch may (and has for countless SUA victims) result in an OPEN THROTTLE situation. The brakes become INEFFECTIVE in these situations and crashes into storefronts, buildings, and homes have resulted.

    What does the automaker say? They hook the vehicles up to the computer and declare NOTHING WRONG! They cite the EDR which has erroneous data and say YOU were NOT braking. They point the finger at you based on AGE, GENDER, MEDICAL history, prescription meds, etc. YOU name it, they’ve TRIED it!

    Get the picture? And you THOUGHT the GM issue was big? Think again! This cover-up of ELECTRONIC SUA is scandalous and very well-orchestrated.

    Why even a WHISTLEBLOWER has been legally harassed by Toyota as it does NOT want her Toyota internal docs posted online anymore. The automaker wants to intimidate and SILENCE her. It doesn’t want the PUBLIC involved, for goodness sake!

    @,Charlene,B ,hail, hail, well done, I must further add ,I am an engineer and technology scares me, because everyone seems to forget ,safety. Considering the vehicle scandal at the present time ,again computer technology to fool us all.

    Some corporates, have developed ,driverless vehicles , which are being tested, that’s frightening, all electronic data is so easy to be compromise .
