UTAH COUNTY -- A runaway gravel truck rolled across Alpine Highway and narrowly missed a canal Wednesday morning.

The driver was not in the truck at the time. The truck was being loaded with gravel when it started rolling away from the site.

It rolled down the hill, jumped the highway and ended in a field, stopping just before it ran into a canal.

The driver says he locked the first set of brakes when he got out of the truck but wasn't sure about the second set.

No one was hurt.
