You probably have a bad Idle Air Control Valve (IACV). In fuel injected carburetors when the throttle valve is closed the IACV opens and closes to control the idle speed. If it malfunctions the engine may rev up allowing the car if in gear to accelerate on its own . When I had a bad IACV in my Mitsubishi Lancer it would drive down the road at 50 mph with out touching the gas pedal. Fortunately, it could be slowed down by using the brakes (unlike the Toyota stories).
