Mike and Ruth Smith had been taking their Black Lab, Caroline, alongside for a go back and forth to the grocer when one thing spooked the 90-pound puppy.
When she will get scared, Caroline has a tendency to dive onto the floorboard of the 1988 Dodge pickup. Only this time, Caroline dove proper onto Ruth’s foot, urgent it squarely at the fuel pedal.
The couple had been not able to drag Caroline off the pedal so Ruth, who was once in the back of the wheel, aimed for a picket fence, to each forestall the automobile and to keep away from hitting any pedestrians.
After busting throughout the fence at about 55 MPH, they landed smack in the course of John McNamara’s pool! John and his spouse had been within the kitchen once they heard the commotion.
“I just had open heart surgery in January,” McNamara instructed WTVD-TV. “I said, ‘I’m gonna have another heart attack here.’”
Mike suffered a couple of cuts to his hand and Ruth and Caroline had been each unhurt.
They are sorry for what took place to the McNamara’s pool, however the couple say it most likely stored all 3 in their lives.
As for Caroline, it may well be time for a seat belt!
