Faulty brakes being blamed for overnight truck crash in Yonkers

Faulty brakes may be to blame for an overnight accident on a busy street in Yonkers.

Surveillance video captured the crash as it happened around 2 a.m.

Police say the driver was out of the vehicle when the emergency brake failed and rolled down the street on its own.

The truck rolled out of control until it slammed into a light pole and two other parked cars at a gas station.

No one was hurt in the accident.

So far, no charges have been filed against the truck driver.
