    It’s a FORD, it obviously slipped into gear. I’m suprised there wasn’t an engine fire too.

      Maybe he thought it was designed to FORD the river. Or perhaps his presumably unscheduled pit stop had assumed emergency proportions, and he had no time to set the e-brake.

       A friend bought a Ford. Regretted his purchase when it needed new spark plugs. Said he belonged to the Ford Owner/Operators League. That made him a FOOL!

    • he owed money….insurance will pay…………

    Emergency brake…every single time…you put vehicle into Park.

    Double check brake, before you open door, or allow someone else to enter vehicle.

    Shorter version: Shut engine if not moving for 10 seconds or longer.  Saves fuel, wear on engine.

    Set brake.

      Put er in low and hurry…..

  • If yer back teeth are floating or you’re prarie doggin’, ya’ may not even slip it into park (assuming it’s an automatic) before ya’ head for the outhouse.

    Not the best way to wash your truck.
       I’m sure it will be for sale soon at a dealership near you…with all new electronics…hopefully!  It still will never be the same truck. Glad to that no one was hurt.

    This is the reason why insurance ads on television use the exact scenarios they do in selling themselves to prospective customers…..one of those oh crap moments!

      I bet that Allstate Mayhem guy had something to do with it.

  • Scott Harriman

    Either the parking brake and the transmission both failed at exactly the same time…or it’s this bonehead’s fault.

    I’m going to go with the second option.

    It amazes me that this type of article is on the first page of the online addition of the BDN, yet I can’t find anything of world news on this site at all.

      What part about Bangor Daily News is confusing you?

  • He was fishing and left his pole propped up between his brush guard and grille. An Androscoggin    Northern Pike did the rest.
