I just watched that dog drive that truck over a tree and into a car.

While labradors may make for incredible, loving pets, it appears as though they may have one major, undiscovered downfall: operating vehicles.

Recently in Mankato, Minnesota, a messy situation unfolded when witnesses described watching a semi truck crash into a tree before eventually rolling through a gas station and into a parked car. Confused at first, witness David Stegora, stated, "I heard the tree snap and I thought somebody decided to turn around, but then it just kept going forward."

The Mankato Free Press was on the scene and claimed that, "Stegora didn't understand how the truck was moving by itself, as he couldn't see the driver. That changed once the dog climbed up near the driver's side window."

The guilty-looking pup emerged from inside the massive truck while the police commander filed an accident report and removed the truck from the road.

Luckily the joyride didn't harm anyone at the scene, although the unnamed dog did appear frazzled from the incident.

In a statement released by the police commander, he made no confusion about who the guilty parties involved were, claiming, "All I know is it was a Labrador."

While the dog may be the one guilty of driving without a license, it's unknown if he or the owner of the truck will have to do the time for the crime.
