Throttle Controller Bank 1 (2B15)

So this just happened today, doing pulls on the highway I was driving in D5 at about 55mph, i depressed the accelerator and the whole car lost 80% of its hp, lights came on, engine malfunction and other errors(pictures below)

I ran the codes while it was running and got
Codes:
2B15
2B59
2B57

I took the car home it drive fine no hesitations, shifting fine etc..

Turned the car off waited a bit and the codes were gone, I didn't take it for a drive yet because of the fact that all this happened I wasn't sure if its safe to go drive it again.

But codes are gone and my question is, has this happened to anyone else? They get Throttle actuator code and upon reseting the car its totally fine with no codes and drives like a champ?

Throttle actuator is in the orders but seeing if you guys have similar issues?
