There was a little drama in the city of Port St. Lucie in Florida, United States as a dog puts its owner’s car in reverse and drove in circles for almost an hour.
A dog, Max, hit the gearshift and put the car into reverse, after it got locked in the car according to authorities in Florida. Police say it started with a wrong turn that prompted a driver to step out of his car. He shut the door and keep moving
Although there were no damages to the car, and no member of the community suffered injury as a result of the incident, the dog-driver smashed a neighbour’s mailbox and hit some garbage cans in the process of driving.
According to a report by CNN, one of the residents of the neighbourhood, Anne Sabol, who witnessed the dramatic incident, said she thought it was an amateur student driving the car in circles, only to later find out that it was a dog that was behind the wheel.
According to the eye witness, Sabol; “At first I thought I saw somebody backing up, but then they kept going, and I’m like, ‘OK, what’re they doing?'” The dog put the car in reverse mode and drove in circles for almost one hour before it stopped and safely came out of the car”.
Sabol was impressed with the dog’s driving and jokingly said it should be given a driving license. “They should give that thing a license,” she said.
The dog’s owner, explaining how the incident happened to the police, said he had left the car running while the dog entered, put the car in reverse drive and drove for nearly one hour. No member of the community suffered injury as a result of the incident and the dog owner has promised to fix the smashed mailbox.
