TULSA, OK (KOKI/CNN) - A runaway pickup had two dogs at the wheel Tuesday.

No one was hurt, but thanks to the two canines, traffic was backed up, and their owner's truck was badly damaged.

When Tulsa Police and Fire got the call that the truck had crossed Riverside Drive and landed in the Arkansas River riverbank, first responders immediately assumed a person was driving - but this time, that was not the case.

"Apparently, it was knocked out of gear by one of the dogs," Tulsa Fire Department Clay Ayers said.

The dogs, Roscoe and Luna, took their owner's truck for a drive down the top of a hill.

"Two boys on skateboards seen the vehicle leave from in front of the residence, and they did try to catch up with it with no luck and watched it cross Riverside and on down to the riverbank," Ayers said.

This isn't the place the owner Scott, who only gave his first name, thought he'd be reuniting with his dogs.

"I got around to the front of the house where the truck was, and it's like not there. And I was like, 'Did I get towed?' and I just thought? ‘No, it didn't,'" he said.

It missed drivers on Riverside Drive and runners on the trail. Roscoe and Luna didn't have a scratch, but the truck sustained damage.

Police did not issue Scott any citations.
