In a story too bizarre to be made up, a man (yes, he was American) was run over by his dog driving the man’s vehicle (yes, it was a pickup truck). The driving dog in question was a Bulldog named Tassey, and the dog drove the pickup over the man after she ‘accidentally’ put the truck into gear.
The man, Christopher Bishop from Florida, was under the pickup at the time, looking for an oil leak in the Ford F-150. Bishop’s dog, Tassey, jumped into the driver’s side and knocked the vehicle into gear, running over her owner.
The truck ran over Bishop, causing him immense pain, but he was able to get straight up and chase after the pickup, and the dog, before it ran through a fence. Bishop attended the local hospital, Pasco Regional Hospital, and received treatment for his injuries.
Has your dog ever accidentally put your car into gear, or stepped on the handbrake of your car causing it to move?
