Talk about a bad day. A man in Massachusetts was ticketed after being run over by his own pickup truck.

Salem police responding to reports of a car accident found Brian Reynolds, 40, lying injured and face down in the road on Monday afternoon, the Boston Herald reported.

He told police the brakes in his pickup truck had failed.

According to the Salem Patch, Reynolds said he tried to slow the truck by sticking out his foot and driving up a hill.

Instead, he fell out of the truck, which rolled over his left leg, according to the Herald.

Reynolds suffered only minor injuries, and the truck eventually stopped after hitting a fire hydrant.

He was issued a $35 ticket for driving with defective equipment.
