SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) -- Michael Henson left the auto parts store with more
problems than when he arrived. For that, he can thank his dog.
Henson, whose truck had a sticking throttle, brought his dog along for
company when he drove to O'Reilly Auto Parts store in Springdale on Sunday.
``He'd left the truck running -- I guess to show the people at O'Reilly's --
and the dog jumped over and knocked the truck into gear,'' Springdale police
Sgt. Billy Turnbough said.
The truck raced into the building, stunning Henson and clerk Josh Hopper.
``The guy said he was standing there, looked up, and saw his dog driving his
truck through the building,'' Turnbough said.
Hopper said he heard the crash and looked up from the transaction.
``His truck was in the window,'' Hopper said. ``I thought, 'Oh no.'
Everybody was fine. His front left tire just made it onto the brick wall.''
No one was hurt and no humans or animals were cited, police said.
