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.
