ERWIN, N.C. — A North Carolina dog is in big trouble after crashing her owners’ truck into a swimming pool.

WRAL reported that a black lab named Carolina crashed Michael and Ruth Smith’s 1988 Dodge Ram into the pool.

The couple brought their dog along for a ride Friday as they went grocery shopping. But Michael Smith said the dog got spooked by something.

The 90-pound dog reportedly stepped on the driver’s foot and would not let go.

“When she gets scared she will go down on the floorboard of the truck,” he told WRAL.

The truck plowed through the fence and splashed into a backyard pool, according to the TV station.
