Police in Maine told the Associated Press that a dog caused its owner’s truck to roll into a lake.

Investigators said a man had driven to a lake, parked his truck, and walked his dog. When they came across another dog, the man decided to put his dog in his truck.

While he talked to the other dog’s owner, his dog, a Yorkshire terrier, managed to bump the truck’s gear shift, causing it to roll into the lake.

A family friend swam out to the truck and was able to rescue the dog.

The truck, which sank in 10 feet of water, is considered a total loss.
