In an event that is sure to reflect poorly on doggie drivers everywhere, a yellow lab is apparently responsible for driving his owner’s semi truck across the street and into a parked car.
The semi truck was in a nearby parking lot when witnesses say they saw it start heading straight towards a gas station across the street. The adorable pooch was apparently waiting for his owner when he knocked the truck into gear. It traveled through the parking lot, over the curb, across the street and finally into a car — after demolishing a tree.
A passerby was quick to jump in the truck and stop it, only to be greeted by a wagging tale.
David Stegora detailed the scene to the Mankato Free Press. “I heard the tree snap and I thought somebody decided to turn around, but then it just kept going forward,” he said. He didn’t understand what was happening until the dog peered out the window to see what all the fuss was about.
Thankfully, no injuries were reported at the scene, and the driver of the truck was not issued a citation. No word yet on whether the dog will seek additional driver training, but given the scene that played out in Minnesota, it’s safe to say he was almost certainly not licensed to drive commercial trucks.
