Dash-cam video released this week recorded a woman's SUV as it raced down an Iowa freeway with a stuck accelerator.

The driver called 911 unable to pry the accelerator loose, terrified as her 2011 Kia Sorrento topped speeds of 100 mph.

The video shows the car swerving around other cars, speeding past semi trucks and going through construction zones on I-35. 

Through the 911 dispatcher, troopers advised the woman to hit both her accelerator and brakes, which finally brought the car to a stop.

Kia Motors said it appears to have been an isolated incident.
