NOV. 22, 2019 | 12:43 P.M. | PORT ST. LUCIE–Police officers went to the 2600 block of Southwest Edith Court, located in the Cashmere Cove neighborhood about 8 a.m. yesterday. They found a dog locked inside of a car circling the cul-da-sac while in the reverse gear.
The police learned the owner of the car made a wrong turn onto the street. The driver stopped his car, stepped out and while doing so, he shut the door leaving the dog inside. The dog named Max accidentally hit the shifter into reverse causing the car to circle the cul-de-sac, leaving the owner locked out of the car.
As the car circled the cul-de-sac, it struck and damaged a mailbox. The owner provided police with an extra key fob, however, it had a dead battery, so police gained access by approaching the car and entering the code on the keypad located on the driver side door.
No injuries were reported, and the car sustained minor damage. Max was fine, healthy and happy!
