From the AP article today about the runaway Prius:
Neibert told Sikes after the CHP caught up with him to shift to neutral but the driver shook his head no. "Sikes told reporters he didn't go into neutral because he worried the car would flip."
Seriously? Turning off the car was ok, but putting it into neutral causes your car to flip over? Someone please explain this to me, because I don't even know where to begin explaining that one.
