Toyota's recent recall of millions of vehicles for sticking accelerator pedals may get drivers wondering: What should you do if a vehicle is accelerating uncontrollably?

Editor's Note: This story is part of newly-released documents from the Office of Special Investigations, a unit of the Justice Department created in the 70’s to track down war criminals, prosecute them and get them extradited.

For decades, he lived in obscurity in New England until a dogged American prosecutor tracked him down. CNN's Brian Todd takes a look at what one prosecutor calls the "ultimate cold case."
