The most incredible Bizarre File story from today!

This guy’s BMW was speeding down I-95 in Florida for almost 50 miles at nearly 100 miles per hour. He wanted to stop, and so did everyone else, but he simply couldn’t! According to news reports, the driver, Joseph Cooper, who is 28 and lives in Palm Coast, Florida, called 911 dispatchers and said, “I think my gas pedal is stuck to my car.” Cooper, who was obviously panicking and feeling frantic, then told dispatchers that he wasn’t able to put his SUV in neutral or stop the car.

You can see some of the dash-cam and police video and hear the audio HERE:
