Motorists on a busy stretch of the M74 were subjected to delays on the motorway by a rather unusual incident – The sight of a dog driving a tractor.
The sheepdog called Don had climbed into the agricultural vehicle and accidentally engaged the motor, causing it to crash through a fence, stopping only when it came into contact with the central reservation.
The dog’s owner Tom Hamilton was away from the vehicle at the time tending to his sheep when the incident happened.
Luckily, the dog escaped unscathed and no other people were injured in the freak event.
Hopefully this will make all vehicle owners paws for thought before leaving their pets in the driving seat.
Safe driving from Britannia!
