A Labrador Retriever recently crashed her family's truck into a swimming pool in Erwin, North Carolina.
Michael and Ruth Smith brought their dog, Caroline, with them on a grocery run last Friday.
"When she gets scared she will go down on the floorboard of the truck," Michael told WRAL (video below).
Ruth was behind the wheel when Caroline, who weighs 90 pounds, stepped down on her foot, causing the truck speed up in the grocery store parking lot.
While Michael tried to pull Caroline off the floorboard, Ruth steered towards a wooden fence, noted Fox Carolina.
"I didn't know what, what else to do," Ruth told WRAL.

The truck crashed through the fence and ended up in a swimming pool.
Homeowner John McNamara told his wife there was a truck in their pool, and recalled, "She just laughed at me and said, 'You know, what are you smoking or something?'"
No one was seriously injured, but the truck was totaled.
Michael added, "I hate that it happened to his pool, but I think it might have saved our lives."
