Let it be noted that the best way to stop an out-of-control car with no brakes is to try engaging the parking brake. That being said, it's also a terrifying occurrence, so logic is sometimes thrown out the window in lieu of more of a reflex-oriented response. Brian Reynolds, 40, found himself in the latter scenario when the brakes on his Chevrolet pickup failed near a park in Salem, Massachusetts. While it isn't clear whether Reynolds attempted to engage the parking/emergency brake, at some point he opened the door and tried pulling a Fred Flinstone by stopping his truck with his foot.

At some point after opening his door, the Salem Patch reports that Reynolds fell out of his still-moving truck, and it ran over his leg before continuing down the street and crashing into a fire hydrant. Although the specific injury wasn't reported, Reynolds was hospitalized, and adding insult to injury (in the most literal sense of the phrase), the local police reportedly ticketed him for operating a vehicle with defective equipment.Man given ticket after getting running over by his own truck originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 05 Dec 2012 10:00:00 EST.

This is why people shit on cops. They just have to make that revenue. The guy got run over by his own truck. I think he learned his lesson. Or at least I hope so.

What if his dipshit move had caused the truck to run over a kid?

I don't feel sorry for him at all.
