Dog causes car crash

MIDDLETON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin police said a dog caused a fender-bender in a parking lot when it knocked a parked car's gear shift into neutral. Middleton police said the car's owner had stopped for lunch Thursday and left his dog in the car.

Officer Jeff Winer said the dog somehow bumped the car into neutral. He said the car rolled out of its parking spot and into a pickup truck across the lot. Police said the damage to each vehicle could run in the thousands of dollars.

Winer said it's the first time in his 27-year career he's seen a dog at fault in a collision. He told WISC-TV when he first heard what happened he thought it was an April Fools' joke.

Carjacker stalled by manual transmission
FOUNTAIN HILL, Pa. (AP) - Police in eastern Pennsylvania said two men tried to rob and carjack a pizza delivery driver but were defeated by the vehicle's standard transmission. Fountain Hill police said the Domino's Pizza driver had stopped at a red light early Friday when a man ran up to the vehicle from the rear and grabbed her by the throat and shirt. He demanded money while a second man tried to open the passenger door.

Police said the driver reported that the men fled after making a reference to the manual transmission. Investigators did not say whether they escaped with any money from the driver.
