PRYOR, Okla. (AP) - A dog waiting in a car while at a Pryor car wash slipped the vehicle into gear and drove in a loop before the car came to a stop.
Pryor police officer Brent Crittenden says the dog's owner was washing the vehicle when the 70-pound pit bull jumped on the dash and somehow shifted the car into reverse.
The car backed out of the car wash bay, continued onto a highway and then looped around before coming to a stop at an automated car wash lane.
Crittenden says the vehicle was impounded because its owner was unable to provide proof of insurance.
Because the dog was registered with the city, Crittenden says the owner was allowed to walk the pooch home.
