YORK, Pa. —

Police in Pennsylvania say a dog that was left in an unattended vehicle knocked it into gear and the car struck a pedestrian.

West York Police say the accident happened shortly before 11:30 a.m. Tuesday and the pedestrian was found lying in the street.

The York Daily Record reports (http://bit.ly/14mziFt) police say the car had been left running when the dog inside pushed it into drive, causing it to slowly start moving.

Police say the pedestrian tried to stop the car before it hit a parked truck, but was unsuccessful and was caught between the two vehicles. He hit his head, fell to the ground and was found unconscious.

He was treated at a hospital for his injuries.
