Car on way to brake inspection crashes when brakes fail

A Cadillac DeVille that pulled in for a brake check crashed through the front window when the brakes failed completely.

Longview patrolman Erik Hendrickson said the driver went to Les Schwab because the brakes were "acting strange." The car was pulling into a parking slip when the brake pedal "went to the floor," Hendrickson explained. The car kept moving until the driver "threw the transmission into park and it finally stopped."

"The entire hood went into the store. Six or eight feet of the car was inside the store," Hendrickson said. » Article here
