Kilgore, TX – On December 1, police in Kilgore received a call about a reckless driver who had struck two cars in a Walmart parking lot. One of the victims was utterly shocked to see who was behind the wheel…
The authorities said:
He was shocked to see the driver was a dog! Yep, the pooch was actually behind the wheel when the crash occurred.
The investigation revealed how the pooch managed to put the vehicle in motion:
The investigation revealed the dog was sitting in the unoccupied vehicle waiting on his humans while they shopped. He apparently got little antsy and bounced around the cab setting this truck in motion. The steering colum had some prior damage and this pooch must have placed the vehicle in drive.
The dog was attached to a leash, which presumably got caught on the emergency brake, releasing it.
The sequence of events leading up to the parking lot fiasco seems implausible, but the witness and the dog’s expression, seem to confirm the bizarre incident. The agency said:
It doesn’t sound feasible but an eyewitness saw the pooch behind the wheel just before the crash. He certainly has a guilty look on his face.
The crazy crash led to a slew of comical comments on the police agency’s Facebook page.
Fortunately, no one was hurt in the mayhem.
