Man Run Over, Killed, when Dog Jumps into Car, Pushes Accelerator

Yes, Florida...

CANTONMENT, Fla. -
A man has died after a dog jumped into a van, stepped on the accelerator and struck him as he opened a gate outside a Florida Panhandle home, according to officials.

The Florida Highway Patrol says Iris Fortner, 56, and James Campbell, 68, were backing into their driveway at their home in Cantonment on Monday when Campbell got out of the passenger side of the vehicle to open the metal gates.

Troopers said Fortner opened the driver's door to see where Campbell was standing, and that's when Fortner's large boxer bull dog jumped into the car and pressed the accelerator.

FHP says Fortner tried to stop the van before the vehicle backed into Campbell, but he was trapped under the van.

Campbell was pronounced dead at the scene by Escambia County paramedics.

This has earned its own entry on the list of unusual deaths.
Was the handbrake disengaged?

Sounds a little contrived...Are they sure this wasn't just an elaborate attempt to cover up murder? Florida doesn't exactly have a stellar criminal apprehension record.

Then again, they don't call them 'freak' accidents for nothing

Yeah, how do they know Fortner didn't do it?

The dog wanted to go too !!
My dogs locked me out once. Engine off, tho, so they did not take driving.
