 Description of the problemOn jan 20, 2005 at about 7:30pm i was returning from work driving my lexus 2003. Just before reaching my home, i turned right into notley road from stone gate drive at silver spring, md after stopping at the stop sign. Before i realized, the car knocked over the mail box of the house on the right side and started racing on the yard of the house. Next the car knocked down the street light, crossed a road and raced towards a tree. Although i applied, the brakes were not working. Ultimotely the car crashed on to a tree, turned over and i was lucky enough to crawl out of the car with much effort. I was taken to the montgomery county general hospital by ambulance and after being examined by the physician and xrays i was released. The car was ultimately towed to lexus body shop and was pronounced a total loss i feel that the lexus took off on its own when i turned right from a stop sign into the notley road damaging propery and ultimoately crashing on to a tree. Because there was snow on the yard, i was able to videotape the track marks made by the car from the beginning to the end of the crash. I hope that you will investigate this incident and give me some report.*ak
