Residents of a neighborhood in Port St. Lucie, Florida, were concerned when they saw a car driving in circles around their cul-de-sac. When they went outside, they noticed that there was nobody behind the wheel. Instead, the only occupant of the car was a dog.
Police say that the owner of the car left it running with his dog still inside when he stepped out. Somehow, the dog managed to knock the vehicle into reverse and it backed out of his driveway and into the street.
The car struck a mailbox and ran over a trash can, leaving debris strewn across the road.
After about an hour, a police officer managed to open the door and bring the car to a stop.
The dog, who appeared happy in the out-of-control car, was not hurt. The owner of the vehicle, who asked not to be identified, promised to buy his neighbor a new mailbox.
