 Description of the problemThe brakes on our 2008 dodge ram 1500 failed on 2/5/2016. As i was in motion headed straight when the truck's brakes failed and i hit the vehicle in front of me. I was traveling straight on a city street about 20-30 mph when i lost the use of the brakes. The truck kept traveling forward about 50 yards after i hit the other vehicle and i wasn't sure how i was going to stop the moving truck when i remembered to use the emergency brake. The vehicle stopped after that in the center turn lane and i remained there until the police arrived. When the officer arrived i explained to him that the brakes on the truck failed even after i had been running errands and picked up lunch just minutes before the accident. A police report was made and i took pictures of the brake pedal and internal brake components immediately after the accident. The brakes were shown to the responding police officer and the person in the other vehicle i had hit. I also reported the faulty brakes to our insurance company. I can provide a copy of the police report once it's available in 24-48 business hours. I believe the 2008 dodge ram 1500 truck was built with an improperly formed or faulty brake booster input rod retaining clip which caused improper service brakes and/or hydraulics.
