Car damaged after man scared by dog



CUMMING, Ga. — A man jumped on his car to avoid a dog that was chasing him and wound up shattering his windshield.

On June 21, a man delivering phonebooks told Forsyth County Sheriff’s deputies he parked his 2007 Lincoln Town Car in the driveway of a home in the 5000 block of Deer Chase Trail.

He said that as he walked away from his car, a large black dog came running toward him.

The man was afraid of being bitten, so he ran toward his car.

The dog chased after him and the man jumped up on hood of his car to avoid being bitten.

He said he slid across the hood and shattered the windshield by the driver’s side. He said he slid on top of the car several more times, which caused more damage to the car.

The man said he does not believe the dog hurt him, but the man did injure his arm and leg from the impact with his car.

A neighbor said the dog was dropped off in the area and she has never had a problem with the dog being aggressive toward anyone. The neighbor said she feeds the stray dog.
