SAN DIEGO (AP) - There are new doubts about the story told by California resident James Sikes who said his Toyota Prius sped out of control on a highway as he tried desperately to bring it to a stop.

A memo prepared for a congressional panel says experts who've looked at the car just don't think it's possible for that to have happened. The memo says that each time the technician floored the gas pedal and hit the brake at the same time, the car shut off as it is designed to do.

The Sikes is standing by his story. His wife says she wants people to leave them alone now.
