Joyriding dogs crashed truck into river

A pickup truck with two dogs at the wheel crashed into a river bed in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Tuesday.

The dogs, Roscoe and Luna, were inside their owner's truck at the top of a hill. In a matter of minutes, they were careering down Riverside Drive and into the Arkansas River river bed. "It's an expensive joyride," the dogs' owner, Scott said.

Scott said he left his dogs inside his truck for about 15 minutes while he went inside a home. "I got around to the front of the house where the truck was, and it's like not there," he said. "And I was like 'did I get towed?' and I just thought no it didn't." One of the dogs had put the car into gear and they took off.

"Approximately three blocks down a hill," Tulsa firefighter Clay Ayers said. The dogs missed drivers on Riverside Drive, runners on the trail and narrowly missed landing in the Arkansas River. "Two boys on skateboards seen the vehicle leave in front of the residence and they did try to catch up with it with no luck," said Ayers. Police decided to let Roscoe and Luna off scot-free.
