Silverado 2500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,329 miles
Parked on boat ramp, in park with E brake on. Boat was off trailer (afloat). I was unhooking and winding up front strap when I noticed truck moving backward into lake. I was able to jump in and stop vehicle by applying service brakes. A tow chain was attached, I put transmission into drive and was safely be pulled out. Vehicle is a total loss. Shift selector and E-brake failures?
