Runaway Toyota Prius: Original story questioned after failed re-run

We have more on the ‘runaway’ Toyota Prius story now, as it has been reported that an official attempt at a re-run of the incident has failed, leading to questions surrounding the truth of the original story.

As reported from CNET, U.S. government agency and Toyota attempted to replicate the now infamous runaway Prius incident in San Diego, but failed to do so.

Officials are now saying the whole thing ‘does not add up’, which is now likely to lead to a further investigation until a conclusion can be met.
