Two dogs named Roscoe and Luna, and others in Tulsa, Oklahoma are luckily safe and sound after the pups took an unforeseen joyride in their owner’s Ford pickup truck. KOKI Fox 23 spoke to Clay Ayers, a responding Tulsa firefighter, who explained, “Apparently it was knocked out of gear by one of the dogs.”
The vehicle was parked on the top of a hill on 25th street and the dogs’ owner, identified simply as "Scott," left his pets for 15 minutes while he went inside a home. Scott recalled that when he returned, “I got around to the front of the house where the truck was, and it's like not there, I was like, 'Did I get towed?' and I just thought, ‘No it didn't.’"
The truck was nowhere near where Scott parked it. After the dogs set the truck in gear it traveled down the hill, across a busy intersection at Riverside Drive near a pedestrian bridge, over a jogging path, and eventually hit a cement culvert that stopped it on the bank of the Arkansas River. Fortunately, the motoring mutts were able to avoid cars and pedestrians along their 3-block voyage and they emerged uninjured. The same could not be said for Scott’s vehicle, which took a tow truck 2-hours to pull from the riverbank.
