No Point Crying Over Spilt Milk

by | 26th, January 2004

‘IT is embarrassing enough to be run over by a milk float, but try to explain to police that the driver responsible was a dog. That’s what happened to a 75-year-old man, who was taken to hospital with a grazed knee following the incident in the Meols area of the Wirral peninsular.

Merseyside Police said the accident happened after Monty, a black Labrador, jumped onto the accelerator of the vehicle in which he was travelling as a passenger. He was also injured in the incident and was taken to a local vet for treatment.

However, Norman Harrison, managing director of Morton’s Dairies, which runs the milk round, denied that Monty had caused the accident. ‘The milkman was at a door when a local man got into the cab of the milk float and tried to feed him,” he said. “As he was doing this he accidentally hit the accelerator and was hit by the float.”
