Cameras catch chihuahua taking a quick cruise
SLIDELL, La. (KYMA, KSWT, KECY/NBC News) - It was anything but a joy ride for a pint-sized pup and its owner when it accidentally took a quick cruise in the family SUV.
The chihuahua's owners were filling up at a gas station in Slidell, Louisiana, when the little dog accidentally put the SUV into reverse.
Security cameras show the SUV slowly rolling backwards across a four-lane highway. The shocked owner could do nothing but chase it.
The vehicle finally came to rest without incident at a gas station across the roadway. Police say it's a miracle there wasn't an accident.
The dog's master did get slightly hurt trying to chase down her vehicle.
Police say the SUV actually had a mechanical issue that allowed the gears to shift without the brakes being pressed.
