West York Police said they responded to a call at 11:25 a.m. Tuesday about a man being struck by a car and officers arrived to find a dog had been left unattended inside the running car and managed to knock it into gear, the York (Pa.) Daily Record reported Thursday.
The man, a Hokes Mill employee, attempted to stop the car before it hit a parked truck, but was unsuccessful and ended up pinched between the vehicles.
The worker struck his head, fell to the ground and was unconscious for a time. He later regained consciousness and was taken to York Hospital for treatment.
It was unclear if any action would be taken against the owner of the car.
