Two dogs take a joyride and crash truck into river


None - TULSA, Okla. -- A runaway pickup with two dogs at the wheel. It happened Tuesday in Tulsa near 25th and Riverside Drive. No one was injured, but thanks to the two canines traffic was backed up and their owner's truck is badly damaged.

The dogs, Roscoe and Luna, were inside their owner's truck at the top of the hill on 25th Street. In a matter of minutes, they were barreling
across Riverside Drive and into the Arkansas River river bed.

"It's an expensive joy ride," the dogs' owner, Scott said.

Scott told Fox 23 he left his dogs inside
his truck for about 15 minutes while he went inside a home.

"I got around
to the front of the house where the truck was, and it's like not there," he said. "And I was like 'did I get towed?' and I just thought no it didn't."

One of the dogs put the car into gear and they took off.

"Approximately three blocks down a hill," Tulsa firefighter Clay Ayers said.

The dogs missed drivers on Riverside Drive, runners on the trail and narrowly missed landing in the Arkansas River.

"Two boys on skateboards seen the vehicle leave in front of the residence and they did try to catch up with it with no luck," said Ayers.

Police decided to let Roscoe and Luna off scot-free.
