Unlicenced driver

A dog 'drove' its owner's truck over a tree and into a car

It appears the Labrador put the idling truck into gear.

CUSTOMERS AT A petrol station in the US state of Minnesota were treated to the sight of Labrador retriever appear to drive a truck into a tree.

Mankato police say the idling truck apparently was put into gear, then went through a car park, across the street and over a curb.

The Free Press of Mankato reports a passer-by discovered the dog sitting in the driver’s seat when he jumped into the truck to stop it.

David Stegora was at the store when he heard the truck smash into a tree and a parked car. He couldn’t see the driver, but saw the dog climb up near the driver’s side.

Police say the truck was taken off the road. The driver had left the unoccupied truck running in a nearby car park.
