A truck driver in New York was run over by his out-of-control truck in Harlem, New York yesterday.

According to the New York Daily News, 45-year-old truck driver Albert Crotez was driving along the Third Avenue Bridge near East 129th Street when his truck’s brakes malfunctioned.

Authorities believe Cortez panicked when he couldn’t get his brakes to work, and he jumped from his truck. Cortez was hit by the truck’s right rear tire.

Crotez was taken to Harlem Hospital where he later died.
