Truck Driver Failed To Set Parking Brake

Arizona - This truck was at the Pilot Truck Stop at Lake Havasu City at Exit 9 on I-40 in western Arizona on September 26, 2006. The guy got fuel, and then pulled forward to go into the truck stop to get his fuel ticket. He failed to set his parking brake, and the truck rolled forward because the entire parking lot is made on a bit of an incline.

I spoke with one of the fire/rescue guys who were cleaning up the spilled fuel mess and the guy said this is the 50th truck that has rolled forward in a similar manner since this truck stop opened a few years ago that he has helped to clean up.
