KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Dogs travel in their owner’s cars frequently, but some trips don’t always end well.
At 8:45 a.m. Monday, Kansas Highway Patrol troopers were dispatched out to the northbound lanes of Interstate-35 near Lamar Road on reports of a crash in the left lane of the highway.
When they arrived, the located the driver of the first car, a 33-year-old Platte City, Mo., woman, who said she was traveling with her dog when the dog jumped in her lap.
The jumping dog distracted the woman, who was unable to stop in time to avoid hitting a car in front of her, driven by a 60-year-old man from Chicago.
Neither driver suffered serious injuries, though the Chicago man was transported to Shawnee Mission Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.
