Dog bumps car into neutral, causing fender-bender

MIDDLETON, Wis. – Wisconsin police said a dog caused a fender-bender in a parking lot when it knocked a parked car's gear shift into neutral. Middleton police said the car's owner had stopped for lunch Thursday and left his dog in the car.

Officer Jeff Winer said the dog somehow bumped the car into neutral. He said the car rolled out of its parking spot and into a pickup truck across the lot. Police said the damage to each vehicle could run in the thousands of dollars.

Winer said it's the first time in his 27-year career he's seen a dog at fault in a collision. He told WISC-TV when he first heard what happened he thought it was an April Fools' joke.
