Texas police officers made a shocking discovery after responding to a crash that occurred in a Walmart parking lot.
The Kilgore Police Department shared its discovery in a Facebook post.
“KPD apprehended a reckless driver today after he ran into two cars in the parking lot Walmart. Thankfully no one was injured in this crash. One of the victims saw the suspect barreling down on him but couldn’t get out of the way,” the department wrote.
The statement then revealed the victim was “shocked to see the driver was a dog!”
According to the department, the “pooch was actually behind the wheel when the crash occurred.”
The investigation found the dog “sitting in the unoccupied vehicle waiting on his humans while they shopped. He apparently got little antsy and bounced around the cab setting this truck in motion.”
The department reported the steering column had some “prior damage” and the dog “must have placed the vehicle in drive. He was also wearing a leash and it’s believed he got that caught on the emergency brake and released it. It doesn’t sound feasible but an eyewitness saw the pooch behind the wheel just before the crash. He certainly has a guilty look on his face.”
