Be careful leaving your dog in the car. He might take it for a spin.
Earlier this month, Tabitha Ormaechea of Spokane, Washington, was stopped at a red light on her way home from work when she was hit by a car that "came out of nowhere."
Behind the wheel: a chihuahua.
"When I looked up, there was no one in the car, just a little dog up on the steering wheel peeking over looking at me," Ormaechea told KREM-TV.
"I was shocked. I didn’t know if I was crazy, if there was just this little dog that had taken a joyride."
The dog, named Toby, had apparently knocked the parked car out of gear. His owner, Jason Martinez, said that he left his car for just a few minutes to run into a store when someone ran in to tell him that his car was rolling into traffic.
"I didn't know what to think. Someone just ran into the store and asked if anyone has a gold car and I said, yeah, me why," Martinez said.
No one was hurt in the accident, and the vehicles involved experienced only minimal damage.
