SAN ONOFRE (AP) - A woman at San Onofre, the famous surfing beach north of San Diego, crashed her car while giving her dog, Boingo, a driving lesson on what is described as the primitive dirt road, the San Clemente Press Telegram reported Monday.
No injuries were reported although both vehicles were slightly damaged, it said.
The woman, identified only be her surname, Addams , said her dog "was fond of crouching on the steering wheel and often watched her drive," according to the witness, who also was only identified by his surname, Murphy .
"She thought she would let the dog 'have a try' while she operated the accelerator and brake," Murphy said. "They did not make it far before crashing into an oncoming car, driven, unfortunately for her, by an off duty ranger, identified only as "Ranger."
Murphy did not say what kind of dog or vehicles were involved but Ranger is reportedly seeking legal counsel to sue for repair costs.
