Default 2003 f150 gas pedal stuck & kept accilerating

Made a turn from a stop and gas pedal kept accilerating. Braking didn't slow it down. Popped it in nuetral and tapped the gas pedal. It went back to normal. Was close to home and thankfully not in traffic so carefully got home. What happened? Anyone know?

Sounds like the cable or linkage got caught up somewhere. Clean the throttle body to make sure the plate isn't getting stuck and inspect the cable. At least you know it isn't an electrical problem since it isn't fly by wire.
