    Dog Blamed for Hitting Woman With Truck
    By Associated Press
    2 hours ago

    OGDEN, Utah - A police dog that was left in a pickup with the engine running apparently knocked the vehicle into gear and ran down a woman who was walking to her mailbox.

    Mary F. Stone, 41, was expected to remain hospitalized with a fractured pelvis and tailbone until at least Friday, said her husband, Paul Stone.

    The dog, a German shepherd named Ranger, had been left in the truck while its handler responded to a domestic disturbance call Tuesday, police Lt. Loring Draper said. The truck's engine was on so Ranger would have air conditioning.

    Draper said Ranger must have hit the shift on the steering column, putting the automatic transmission into gear. As the truck slowly rolled forward, police officers yelled to Stone, but she couldn't get out of the way in time, he said.

    A front and rear tire ran over her. "She had tire marks on her clothes," her husband said.

    The truck then went through the Stones' yard and struck a vehicle in the driveway.

    Draper said police were trying to determine if there might have been some malfunction that would have allowed the gear shift to be moved easily.

    Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.

        Just some good old cops,
        Never meaning no harm.
        Been letting the Dog drive the truck, running over old ladies, since the day they were born.

          Dog gone it! I wonder if the dog faces a disciplinary hearing and suspension or if it gets 2 points for hitting the woman.

              Why was the Ranger in the front seat?

              To give his fellow Officer directions?

              Who normally drove the pickup?

              The Officer or the Ranger?

                    Back, oh, around 1990 or so UConn's first police dog...first week on the job.

                    The Officer did a traffic stop with him.

                    Ordered the dog back into the cruiser when he decided the dog wasn't necessary.

                    Dog jumped in the driver's open window.

                    Knocked cruiser in gear, it drove into the stopped vehicle.

                    I don't think they tried that "trick" again

                        Confused- Here is California, the dog is secured in the back seat of the Crown Vic and no where near the dash/shifter.

                        Why cant the police spend the extra $300-$500 and just outfit their vehcile correctly BEFORE an accident?
