Name This Film Please

A woman takes her car to a mechanic but doesn’t do a good job, when she is on the motorway her brakes are not working and the car is getting faster and faster.

I seem to remember a part where her baby was passed from the car to a helicopter.


Maybe 1980’s-1990’s.

Is Sandra Bullock in it? I remember her in a movie like that in the 90s, with Keanu Reeves I think. I think it was called Speed. They couldn’t stop the vehicle for some reason.


Never mind, I think it’s a different one. They were on a city bus that couldn’t stop on that one.

It’s a TV movie called The Runaway Car. You can read more about it at


I was gonna say, it sounds more like an episode of “CHiPs” than a real movie.
