I want to get some more detail information about your problem-

How long it is there? How often do you go to toilet?

How do you get relief of that?

Do you have any other disease?

Do you take any medicine?

Recent change in diet or any stress?

Waiting for your reply.

Thank you.

There are many causes of sudden uncontrollable bowel movement.
Old age (sphincter become relaxed)
Irritable bowel syndrome,
Nerve damage in diabetes and multiple sclerosis
Muscle damage due to child birth
Any surgery in the pelvic area
Chronic laxative abuse etc

For you it may be age related problem where the sphincters weaken and fail to close if other causes can be excluded.

I hope this will satisfy your query.
