Dog Drives Van Into Coffee House

All those who have teenage drivers in their home as we do, will understand why this Associated Press story from St. James, New York, caught my attention. I thought it was funny enough to pass along.

A dog left inside a running van put the vehicle in drive, causing it to crash into a Long Island coffee house. Suffolk County police said no one was injured in the incident, which damaged the glass window and some patio furniture at Cool Beanz coffee shop in St. James. Police said a 60-year-old Port Jefferson resident left the van running while he went into the shop. His dog, Bentley, somehow knocked the controls.

Do you have any funny driving stories you can tell? My daughter once drove her grandmother’s convertible into the side of the house. How about you?
