GAS PEDAL STUCK, CAR WON'T STOP REV

2003 Toyota MR2 • 4 cylinder 2WD Manual • 93,000 miles

I have a 2003 Toyota mr2 spyder, and when I press on the gas pedal hard, as if trying to accelerate quickly, the gas pedal sticks and the engine gets stuck revving up, and it won’t quit until I turn the car off, or switch gears, but that does not always work. I was driving down the highway today and press the gas pedal to accelerate to switch lanes, and it began to rev up and would not quit, even when I switched gears. I had to pull to the side of the highway and turn the car off to get it to quit. The engine was obviously smoking at that point. Please help!

Would have towed to repair shop DANGEROUS to drive either blow engine or cause a wreck
