TULSA, Okla. -- A runaway pickup crashed into a river Tuesday in Oklahoma -- with two dogs at the wheel.

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 and in a matter of minutes they were barreling across Riverside Drive and into the Arkansas River.

"It's an expensive joy ride," the dogs' owner, Scott said. He said he left his dogs inside his truck for about 15 minutes while he went inside a home.

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

Officials say the dogs missed drivers on Riverside Drive and runners on the trail.

Police decided to let Roscoe and Luna off with a warning.

      What’s it like having a blog with so much “original” content? You must feel amazing about your groundbreaking journalistic skills.

        Well, Graham, it’s like this… I do write article and truthfully, I miss the days when I was a Detective Sergeant with a Squadroom full of Detectives. What happened is, that I started putting more work out, and with 4,300 to 4,800 visitors daily (on average), the demands shifted to where I have effectively re-created my Squadroom, only it is with bloggers.
        I try to cover an assortment of topics and as you can see, I run a conservative blog where, I also indicate harmful activities of crime are subsequent to the improper use of firearms, in order to make people think. If you are in possession of a firearm, please, think. I also give Pro Bono coverage to Missing Persons Reports, regardless of age, race, religion, sexual orientation, because families and loved ones are concerned about the missing persons. I also have someone that is in the White House reading the blog, and I have been on a number of occasions, quoted by the president. Readers are also members of the US intelligence community. Two readers contribute, who are retired working news journalists, and they are neutral but have a leaning somewhat liberal, and I do respect their views. At times we have minor “spats”, or conflicting ideas, but we are all Americans and value is placed upon hearing other views or this would be no better than Nazi Germany. I try to listen. Aside from this computer, I am asocial (not anti-social) and I hardly speak, though I do give ample time to listen to what the concerns of others are.
        In conclusion, Graham, I hope that I have sufficiently explained a few matters to you.
        Thank you, for your comment.
