Semi rolls backwards, crashes into Nashville area home

GREENBRIER, Tenn. (News Channel 5) – A tow truck driver was arrested and a family was left with a badly damaged home and two damaged cars after a tractor-trailer rolled down a street into a home in Robertson County.

The incident happened around 7 a.m. Monday along Elm Hill Court, just off Sycamore Drive in Greenbrier.
According to police, the owner of the truck left the semi running unattended while going into his mother’s home.

The owner of the truck apparently did not have all of the necessary brakes engaged, and the remaining brakes failed – causing the truck to roll down the street, down a driveway, and into a family’s two cars and the side of their home.
