(Newser) – In the and-you-thought-you-had-a-bad-day department: A driver in Salem, Massachusetts, managed to run himself over when the brakes on his pickup truck failed, reports the Boston Globe. Brian Reynolds tried to slow his truck by sticking out his foot and driving up a hill, the result being that he fell out of the truck, which proceeded to roll over his left leg. Luckily, he suffered only minor injuries, and the truck came to a stop after hitting a fire hydrant. Police rewarded his efforts with a $35 ticket for driving with defective equipment.
