Excess heat can cause a modern cable to stick.

Another possibility is an engine or transmission mount that has separated. In such a situation, the engine can shift and bind the throttle linkage, causing a situation like you experienced. Sometimes, a car with a separated engine mount will stick the throttle when power is applied, and release it if the engine is shut off, after which the engine may start and idle normally, and respond normally to the throttle until the car is put in gear and throttle applied, whereupon the linkage will bind up again. The left side motor mounts are more likely to separate on some cars, but any issue with motor or transmission mounts can cause the problem.
