Police in Kilgore, Texas, apprehended a reckless driver in a Walmart parking lot who crashed into two other cars during the incident.
One eyewitness “saw the suspect barrelling down on him but couldn’t get out of the way.”
When police arrived at the scene, there was only a dog in the otherwise unoccupied vehicle while the dog’s owners were shopping inside the Walmart.
“He apparently got little antsy and bounced around the cab, setting this truck in motion,” police said.
Aiding to the problem, the vehicle’s steering column had prior damage, which allowed to dog to put the car in drive. The dog was also wearing a leash, which police believe got caught on the emergency brake and released it.
There were no injuries reported.
