Runaway truck hits 5 cars in Seattle; minor injury

The Associated Press

Police say a box truck that started rolling downhill as its driver was loading it smacked into five parked cars in a Seattle neighborhood.

KOMO-TV reports the truck driver was injured as he jumped from the back of the truck. Seattle Fire Lt. Sue Stangl says he was taken to a hospital with an ankle injury.

No one else was hurt Monday.

Witnesses told police the trouble started as the driver was loading donated goods into the back of the 24-foot truck. KOMO says it was owned by St. Vincent de Paul.

Witnesses say it appears the truck’s brakes failed.

The front end of a Toyota Prius ended up crushed under the truck.
