Exclamation Brakes failed / had accident

Lost my brakes on my 2002 f-250 superduty. Are there any known issues with booster pumps/power assist brakes failing? Pedal went to the floor, no e brake, had to jam tranny in park. Who knows what damage was done. Almost crashed into another vehicle. Did damage to my truck and trailer I was towing. Has anyone ever heard of this? is Ford laible? suggestions?

Check out this guys videos. I saw something the other day about the power steering pump reservoir coming apart (plastic) and you will loose your ability to easily steer and power brakes! Check it out.

Maybe someone else will come along with more than a suggestion to look at a video!

Glad no one was hurt. Trucks can be fixed.

Here's the specific video about the brake failure.

I had that happen when a rear caliper spit out a pad, sucks, but if I had checked the brakes beforehand I would have changed the pads( I had bought it a month earlier, first vehicle with rear discs).
