1996 land rover discovery SE7 gone wild

this morning my Land Rover self accelerated to the floor, the car would not stop with application of the brakes, had to take it out of gear to stop. At this point the engine ran to full charge spewing black smoke from the exhaust. Turned the engine off immediately. attempted to restart and nothing happened, pushed the car out of traffic and then it restarted and ran normal. When I put the gear in Drive, nothing happened, same in reverse, etc. the transmission is totally non responsive even as it appears that one thing has nothing to do with the other.

Just called the Land Rover parts and advice center in new England and they tell me that they are without a clue as to both events as they have never heard of a LR doing this.

any ideas as to what happened that made the car go crazy with acceleration, and what if any relation may this have with the transmission not engaging????

1) Stray radio interference. Someone experimenting with radio gear near by.

2) 1996 Land Rover Discovery Problems
