- Suddenly, mysteriously, and anywhere at any time, a Ford truck parked on an incline would roll away on its own. At first, the consequences were minor a dented bumper, a dinged garage door. But one day, at a secluded cabin in rural central Pennsylvania, a Ford F-150 pickup rolled menacingly toward a crawling baby. Its rear tire caught his tiny arm, pinning him in place, then rolled over his head.
In Bad Brake: Ford Trucks Deadly When Parked , Robert Zausner tells the true story of three horrific incidents caused by one of America s automotive icons and the legal dramas that followed, in the process issuing a stark warning of the risk that still exists to anyone downhill of hundreds of thousands of Ford F-Series trucks.
