Gayla Debose had to be helped out of her vehicle.

Gayla Debose, 54, told deputies that she was pulling into the driveway of her Bellewood Drive home about 5 p.m. She told deputies she hit the brakes, but her Toyota Rav4 didn’t stop, according to Columbia County sheriff’s Deputy Bobby Bradford.

The vehicle crashed through the front wall of the brick house, and firefighters had to remove Debose from her vehicle.

Kind of interesting how she veered away to miss the fireplace.

Seems there actually was a recall on this model for "unintentional acceleration". Class action suit deadline to file was June of 2013. Bought this vehicle in December 2013. Dealer and Insurance company will need to give me some answers!
