A small Spokane, Wash. Chihuahua dog named Toby caused some minimal damage after the vehicle he was in – minus his owner – drove into another car at a red light, according to a Jan. 10, 2014 KREM report.

The woman in the other vehicle, Tabitha Ormaechea was a bit shocked when she failed to see anyone driving the car that bumped her tire.

She told KREM, “…there was no one in the car, just a little dog up on the steering wheel peeking over looking at me.”

Ormaechea added, “…I didn’t know if I was crazy, or if this little dog had taken a joy ride.”

Toby’s owner, Jason Martinez, told the local news media outlet that someone ran into the store he had entered just minutes before, asking if anyone had a gold car, which he did.

He told KREM that Toby must have knocked the vehicle “out of gear,” which made the car roll.
