A man in Salem had a scare when his breaks stopped working, so he attempted the only thing else that he knew to do, do it Flintstones style. According to Salem Police, the man, Brian Reynolds, was found face down on the ground when several units were called to the scene of an accident.

The accident was caused by Reynolds when the brakes failed on his truck. So, in his his best judgement, he decided to try and stop the vehicle with his foot. When that didn't work, he tried to take his truck up a hill, but he fell out of the truck, and his own truck ran him over.

To add the cherry on top of this fail sundae, he was issued a ticket for driving with 'faulty equipment'.
