The dog came out of nowhere, and the woman behind the wheel freaked.
But when she tried to avoid the canine, she accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake pedal, sending her car careening into an apartment building ‘s pool area in northwest Harris County.
The accident happened late Monday night at the Providence at Champions apartments. According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, witnesses say the woman lost control of her car because of the animal, which darted in front of her.
An apartment building sustained major damage in the accident, with some residents trapped on the second floor for a period of time.
There is no word of the driver’s condition.
