Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- An unattended SUV parked in a driveway at 1404 Madison Street rolled down a hill near the corner of Bassett Street late Monday afternoon.

Police say the SUV became caught on a fence and didn’t damage any homes below.
The houses threatened by the runaway SUV were evacuated as a precaution.
