You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, and apparently it isn’t possible to teach a Chihuahua to drive a car no matter how old they are.

A woman who was hit by a car while she was stopped at a red light in Spokane, Wash., was surprised when she eventually got a look at the driver.

It was Toby the Chihuahua.

“Out of nowhere I had looked at all the lights, no cars, I reached down to get some chapstick, and that's when I got hit,” said Tabitha Ormaechea. “When I looked up, there was no one in the car, just a little dog up on the steering wheel peeking over looking at me.”
