September 02, 2004|From Times Wire Reports

A tractor-trailer rig rolled down a hill and crashed into a hamburger stand in Memphis, killing a woman and injuring three other people, including the truck's driver who was in line for a burger.

He had parked the 18-wheeler in a lot before walking to Rally's Hamburgers, police said.

"The truck got free, started rolling down the hill and struck the Rally's," Deputy Fire Chief Donald B. Kuhn said. A customer was killed when she was trapped between the truck and a car in the drive-through line.
