Open Post: Hosted By The “Reckless Driver” Dog Of Texas

December 4, 2022 / Posted by:

We’ve all been involved in some sort of fender bender. Usually, the person at fault is a distracted driver who’s on the phone or is eating a McMuffin with one hand and holding jumbo 7-11 coffee in the other. However, a recent accident in the parking lot of a Walmart couldn’t be blamed on a distracted driver. The figure behind the wheel of this particular incident was a character who couldn’t even hold a cup, much less legally drive a car: a dog! Hard to sue for damages when the only compensation you’ll likely get is a bowl of Purina puppy chow.

The pooch was left to his own devices in the car while his humans went shopping. To pass the time away, the dog thought he could go on a little joyride and managed to put the car in gear. via Insider:

According to the police department, an eyewitness “saw the suspect barrelling down on him but couldn’t get out of the way.” He was “shocked” to later discover that there was a dog behind the wheel.

“Yep, the pooch was actually behind the wheel when the crash occurred,” police said.

A police investigation revealed that the dog was sitting in an occupied vehicle while its owners were shopping. The dog got a “little antsy” and its bounces set the truck in motion, according to Kilgore Police Department.

Police said that the “pooch must have placed the vehicle in drive” and determined that its leash got caught on the emergency brake, consequently releasing it.

Imagine the last thing you see before you die is a dog behind the wheel. Thankfully, no one was hurt, including the pup. In their Facebook post, the police mention that the culprit had a guilty look on his face. But upon seeing the photos, this “good” boy definitely has no regrets about his actions. That’ll teach his humans what’ll happen if they go off in search of bargains at Marshall’s again!
