    The guy who jumped in the truck obviously had no idea what to do and jumped out. Otherwise all he would have had to do was to step on the brakes or pull down on the trailer valve The air system had air in it otherwise the parking brakes should have locked up.
    Many European trucks have the tractor and trailer parking valves in 1 of 2 places usually, either near the drivers door by the seat or near the center of the back of the cab
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Reminds of the time I ended up in a roadside ditch after the car in front of me spun-out on black ice. The tow truck pulled the first car out of one side of the road, and both ended up slipping into the ditch on the other side of the road, barely missing my car.

    It is still on its wheels, so is it really a fail?
