A 21-year-old Abbotsford man broke his leg on Monday evening while he was trying to stop his car from rolling.

The man parked his Toyota Celica in a sloped driveway in the 3300 block of Wagner Drive at about 10:30 p.m.

As he was walking away from the vehicle, it began rolling back, hitting a vehicle parked across the street and then a pole.
