In the eight minutes leading up to the collision, Gandhi told the call handler that the cruise control had become stuck and he could not stop the car accelerating.
He said: “My car is not coming out of cruise control. It is not letting me stop. It [the speedometer] shows 70mph but I think I am going much faster than this.”
The crash happened in a Skoda Octavia.
