Mr. Sikes, last chance to change your Prius story

Prius guy: Richard Heene on line 2

Well, well. Remember the story earlier in the week where the guy’s Prius allegedly went bonkers on a San Diego highway before police were able to slow him down? Now it seems the story has a few holes in it. Who knows, maybe Jim Sikes was speeding and just wanted to skate on the ticket. Or maybe it’s part of the new “Crash your Toyota, and get a new one since there’s so much bad press” promotion. Now his wife says they “Just want to be left alone.” They do? Seems contrary to this list of Jim Sike’s proposed media tour.  Two words, Jimbo: Balloon Boy.

Life in the fast lane

A Prius went bananas on a San Diego highway Monday, accelerating to almost 100 MPH.  No injuries. “I pushed the gas pedal to pass a car and it did something kind of funny,” says soon-to-be-former Prius owner James Sikes. Money quote: “I won’t drive that car again.”
