The owner of the truck left its engine running while he ran into the shop at a petrol station in Mankato, USA.
Dog goes viral after driving Lorry into a petrol station
A dog shocked pedestrians after he was seen driving his owner's lorry and later smashing it into parked cars and a tree.
His pet dog was sitting in the cab at the time and police believe the animal somehow put the juggernaut in gear before driving it through a parking lot, leaving a trail of destruction.
Luckily a member of the public had entered the vehicle, moving the dog aside, before it arrived at a car park.
‘I heard the tree snap and I thought somebody decided to turn around, but then it just kept going forward,’ eye witness David Stegora told The Free Press of Mankato.
He added he was stunned when he saw the dog in the driver’s seat.
Police later confirmed the driver had left the unoccupied truck running in a nearby parking lot and it had now been removed from the road.
