So there were two trucks head on, on a slightly steep hill but were both parked. The one higher on the hill had a flat tire and there was a rock pulling it from rolling down the hill along with it being in gear. The rock was in front of the deflated tire so they had to turn on the ignition to use their air pump but when they inflated the tire it rolled over the rock and pops into neutral and had a 15 foot Headstart and smashed into the car below it. Thankfully, No one was hurt but now they have to fix one of their really expensive shuttles and hand built a very expensive bike racks.

Nah...don't guess so.
We had a massive UHaul box van full of riders in Johnson City once that died and went steamrolling backwards for probably only a few feet, but seemed like a long time. It rolled back into a bank/ditch and the better half of 30 riders went squirting out the back onto the ground. We all pushed up for our runs for the rest of the day.

I once personally saved Marla Streb from falling off the back of a shuttle truck at Bass Lake in California.
