Driving a car or any vehicle is not easy, especially when you are new to it. You do not just have to think about the car that you are driving and the direction that you are taking but you also have to think about the other vehicles on the road, the traffic signs, the road conditions, the weather, and plenty of other factors. As a driver, you have to be responsible behind the wheel because others’ lives are at stake if you are not too careful.
This story is about an unlikely driver and the story happened on March 4th back in 2016. A red semi-truck crashed into a Ford Taurus that was parked. It also happened to hit a tree. This happened in Mankato, Minnesota, near a gas station. The driver of the semi-truck was unharmed and nobody else got hurt in the incident. The only victim was the tree.
This kind of story happens almost on a daily basis with many careless drivers on the road. However, what makes this story quite different than the rest is that the witnesses say that they saw the semi-truck roll without anyone behind the wheel. Is this a ghost story? Well, no. There was a driver behind the wheel but it was not a person – it was a dog!
Marie Brace was one of the witnesses. Others may have run away because of the freaky accident but Marie didn’t. Instead, she went right on to see what had happened. She peeked inside the semi-truck and found a Labrador Retriever right inside. The dog was happy and was glad to see Marie. It didn’t even think that something bad had happened.
Well, the real driver of the semi-truck just stopped to get a bite and left his dog inside. He didn’t think that the dog would do something like this. Well, lesson learned.
