    First off, do you have cruise control? Did you inadvertently turn it on? Secondly, were your floor mats in the correct place? I have had this happen too me on many small Japanese vehicles, and 9 out of 10 times, it was my size 12 feet and big boots that where the problem (Hit the brake and gas at same time!), once in a Samurai, it was a floor mat issue, once in a Chevy Beretta it was an accidental cruise control engagement (My sausage fingers caused it)
