LOXLEY, Ala. - An Alabama man was injured after he was run over by his all terrain vehicle when his dog accidentally released the throttle.
The man had parked the four-wheeler near the entrance of a Bunny Bread Outlet on Thursday and tied his dog’s leash around the handlebars, WKRG reported.
The dog tried to run, tangling the leash around the controls and causing the vehicle to hit the man.
The highway was closed briefly while the man was airlifted to a hospital. His condition is unknown, as is the dog’s.
