The Guardian: Police follow leads as dog 'takes control of tractor' and drives it on to motorway - Traffic Scotland said dog leaned on controls of tractor in a field, causing it to go through a fence and on to M74 in South Lanarkshire

Quote
There was traffic chaos along a busy stretch of motorway after a sheepdog called Don “took control of a tractor” and drove it on to the road.

Quote
Traffic Scotland reported that a dog had leaned on the controls of the tractor, which was in an adjacent field, and caused it to go through a fence and on to the M74 in South Lanarkshire at 8.15am on Wednesday. The tractor then crossed the motorway before crashing into the central reservation.

Quote
“M74 (N) J13-RTC due to dog taking control of tractor … nope, not joking. Farmer and police at scene, vehicle in central res,” the traffic body tweeted.
