Dog peers out of semi after smashing rig into tree, car

One dog’s newest trick is crashing a semi-truck after taking it for a short joyride.

Police in Mankato, Minn., say a golden Labrador retriever put the idling truck into gear Friday, and then went through a parking lot, across the street and over a curb at a Kwik Trip gas station.

One witness snapped the dog peering out the driver’s side window after the semi smashed into a tree and a parked car near the gas pumps, Fox 9 reported.

“In my career I’ve not had an accident reported like this one,” Mankato police officer Daniel Schisel told the station.

No one was hurt, including the dog, the station reported.

No citations were issued to the driver of the semi who had left the unoccupied truck running with the dog inside.

Police did impound the rig.
