Had that happen to me a few months ago. rented a 24ft lorry to move house and the parking brake engaged on the motorway at 60mph due to an electrical fault. Scaaaaaary.
It can also happen on cable brakes: drove over a piece of wood in the road, several years ago, and it flipped up and hit the cable and locked the brake on. Fortunately the warning light came on.
