    How to stop a runaway Prius

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     romanmica read this story and wanted to test it for himself.
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    It was something out of a Hollywood movie...a runaway Prius doing over 90 mph while dodging other cars and perhaps a fiery crash.

     

    But as you may recall from THIS CNN story and video it wasn't a movie at all...it was the real life experience of a 61-year-old runaway Prius driver.

     

    Take a look at the complete list of recalled Toyota cars HERE.

     

    But how hard is it to really stop a runaway Prius that's similar to the one that recently ran away in California?

     

    We put a similar Prius to an unscientific test and tried to make it runaway, and more importantly tried to make it stop.

    What happened?

     

    Watch the video and find out.
