OBERLIN, Ohio — A possible brake malfunction caused an Oberlin Fire Department rescue truck to roll unmanned down a street and collide with a bicycle rack and a car Saturday.

The truck was parked in front of a local business while firefighters responded to an apartment fire on Main Street. That's when the truck started rolling down the road, according to TMC News.

The truck crashed into a bicycle rack and a parked car, but a fast-acting firefighter managed to jump inside the vehicle and stop it before it caused any additional damage, TMC News reported.

Authorities told TMC News that they believe the incident was caused by a malfunctioning emergency brake.

Thankfully, no one was injured.
