Two Oklahoma Dogs Take Joyride, Crash Truck Into Riverbed

| by Emily Smith

Two dogs took their owner's car for a joyride recently when one of the dogs accidentally knocked the gear into drive.

Scott, the dogs’ owner, said he had left the dogs inside his truck for about 15 minutes while he went inside his Tulsa home. When he returned, the truck had disappeared.

"I got around to the front of the house where the truck was, and it's like not there," Scott said. "And I was like 'did I get towed?”’

The dogs had been parked at the top of a hill on 25th Street, but barreled down the hill in a matter of minutes. The truck narrowly missed drivers at an intersection, runners and the Arkansas River.

Tulsa Firefighter Clay Ayers reported that the dogs traveled three blocks until landing in a river bed. Luckily, no one was hurt and the dogs are in good condition.

Scott did not receive a ticket for the mishap, as police noted that the repair costs are punishment enough.
