What could make a person’s day worse than getting hit by a truck?
How about said person being hit by his or her own truck...and then receiving a ticket for it.
Police found Brian Reynolds, 40, of Lynn, lying face down in the road.
He told the officers that as he was driving down the street, the brakes stopped working on his 1987 Chevy. In response, he tried to stop the moving vehicle the old-fashioned, Fred Flintstone way.
He inevitably fell out and the truck drove over his left leg, rolled further down the street—luckily without involving any other vehicles—and crossed the road before hitting a fire hydrant and coming to a stop.
Police fined him $25 for driving with defective equipment.
Next: “I’ll stop if you let me buy you a drink”
