Dog crashes car into Walmart

WAYNE, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Shoppers couldn't believe who was behind the wheel after a car crashed into a Walmart store in Wayne, West Virginia on Friday.

A witness said she was standing in front of the store when she noticed a car started moving from its parking space at the front of the lot in her direction.

The woman said the car slowly moved straight toward her, and at first she guessed the driver was someone she knew who was messing with her.

That is until she noticed the face of the driver was that of a dog.

The woman got out of the way, and the car crashed into the store.

She said a second dog was in the passenger seat, and after the wreck that dog somehow managed to roll the window down.

The store paged the owner of the car, who turned out to be a woman the witness described as looking to be in her late 70s.

The car's owner said she left the car running while she went into the store so the dogs could stay cool, and the dog had managed the get the car out of park.

An employee with the store said the dogs were fine and there was minimal damage done to both the building and car.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Department responded to the scene.

The owner was able to drive the car home after the crash.
