What to do if your Prius is possessed

Hi guys--I finally found some semi-useful information about how to get control of an out-of-control Prius.

But as I understand it, there is no guarantee that any of this will work if the software is malfunctioning. So I'm a little nervous about the fact that either Toyota doesn't know what's going on or isn't telling us.

Also, in stories I've read about this latest runaway Prius in San Diego, the driver apparently refused to put the car in neutral. So that doesn't help answer my question of whether there is an electronic malfunction that prevents drivers from putting the car in neutral when this happens.

Thoughts?
