Dog arrested for reckless driving in Walmart parking lot


KILGORE, TEXAS (GRAY NEWS) – Texas police were shocked to find a dog driving a car that crashed in a Walmart parking lot on Thursday.

According to Kilgore Police Department, the dog was left in the unoccupied vehicle while its owners shopped inside the store.

“He apparently got a little nervous and bounced around the cab, setting this truck in motion,” police said.

To help with the problem, the vehicle’s steering column had suffered previous damage, which allowed the dog to start the car. The dog was also on a leash, which police say snagged on the emergency brake and released it.

“It doesn’t seem feasible, but an eyewitness saw the dog behind the wheel just before the crash,” police said.

The vehicle ended up hitting two other cars in the parking lot. Fortunately, no one was injured, including the dog.
