Forty-year-old Brian Reynolds had a bad day. Feeling the brakes lock up on his 1987 Chevy pickup, the Lynn, Massachusetts man came up with a cartoonish way to stop. Flinging open the driver’s side door he tried to plant his left foot in the pavement. When that didn’t work he turned right up an embankment but ended up falling out of the open door. Of course, the truck was again uncooperative and ran over his left leg just before it crashed into a fire hydrant. Police arrived to find Reynolds face down in the road cursing his luck. He was not seriously injured but officers issued him a $35.00 ticket for what else? Defective equipment.
