Blow Your Top Runaway Saudi Toyota Land Cruiser story is a hoax

Remember that story that was circulating some time ago, about the driver of a current-generation Toyota Land Cruiser in Saudi Arabia who set his cruise control, and then the car supposedly kept accelerating by itself, setting off a series of events that ended up in the police escorting him at high speeds and eventually shooting out his rear window to shut down the car by triggering the immobiliser? Remember how stupidly fake it all sounded? Thatís because it was fake.
