BRAKES FAIL

Auckland City Harbour News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

A truck has crashed into a van af­ter its brakes failed, caus­ing it to roll back­wards down Queen St. A Fire Service spokesman said the crash hap­pened near the in­ter­sec­tion with May­oral Dr about 11.30am on Oc­to­ber 3. Three fire crews were called to the scene fol­lowed by am­bu­lance, po­lice and the po­lice’s Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cle In­ves­ti­ga­tion Unit. A po­lice spokes­woman con­firmed a per­son was in the truck as it ca­reered down­hill and man­aged to steer it into a parked ve­hi­cle. She said no one was in­jured in the in­ci­dent, and the van was not oc­cu­pied at the time of the crash. Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.
