Truck hangs from wall in Nashville

A driver was not hurt after crashing into a fence, which left his trucking dangling above the parking lot of a Nashville business.  

The incident was reported Thursday morning near Hiller Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical off Murfreesboro Pike, not far from Thompson Lane.   

Helicopter footage from Scripps station WTVF in Nashville showed the truck dangling several feet in the air. A chain link fence prevented it from going over the wall.  

The driver told Metro Nashville Police officers that his brakes failed. It's unclear if weather played a factor in the wreck. 

Police on scene said he was not ticketed in the incident.
