MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A tractor-trailer crashed into a ditch early Monday after rolling away from a loading dock in Upper Allen Township.
Township police said the driver, 48-year-old Patrick Henderson, neglected to set the parking brake at a business in the 300 block of Independence Avenue.
After Henderson exited the truck, it rolled away from the building, crossed the roadway and ran over a curb before ending up in the ditch at 1:45 a.m., police said in a news release.
Henderson, of St. Louis, chased the truck on foot and tried to stop it from rolling away, but received a minor injury in the process.
He was transported by ambulance to a hospital for treatment.
