Dog Runs over Owner with Truck

Ford F-150

June 24, 2010 On Monday this week, Christopher Bishop, age 43, of Florida, decided to check his Ford F150 pickup truck for a possible oil leak. But when Mr. Bishop crawled under the truck to check the engine, he left the driver's door open.

This was when his bulldog, named Tassey, decided to jump inside the truck. When the dog did this, he accidentally put the pickup truck in gear and the truck rolled over Christopher Bishop's body.

Amazingly, he did not have any serious injuries, and was able to actually get up and stop the truck before it traveled any further.

Afterwards he went to Pasco Regional Hospital but none of his injuries were life-threatening. As valuable lesson for everybody out there, if you're going to check your pickup truck's oil, make sure you shut the doors.

Dog Runs over Owner with Truck NEW

It was a miracle then. He must have killed by the truck but still he was out of danger with no injuries. I would like to pay someone to write an essay for myself. And fortunately got through this read.

The story is indeed funny NEW
by: Lara

The story is indeed funny, but at the same time it can be a cautionary tale for most people. These days anyone can get a bad credit auto loan and get a car and while some are able to repair their cars on their own, it's always best to see a mechanic.

He should be grateful NEW

He should be grateful he wasn't seriously injured, next time he decides to check his truck he will definetely remember to close the doors. The Ford diesel performance is well known, so hopefully he won't have to go under his truck again anytime soon.

The lesson that is shared at the end of the story is very true. As the pet dog has accidentally switched the truck to gear, it rolled over the owner, but it is sheer luck that the person escaped without much injuries. sell air miles
