Man, dog, SUV get a paint job during accident
A man accidentally repainted the interior of his SUV beige during a single-vehicle accident in Washington State earlier this week.
Jalopnik reports that the man was driving with his dog and several 5-gallon buckets of paint southwest of Belfair on Tuesday afternoon when he somehow lost control of the vehicle and veered off the road.
The buckets of paint were sent hurtling through the air during the incident, and exploded all over the man, his dog and the inside of the truck.
The man, although shaken up and thoroughly soaked with latex paint, had only minor injuries. He was taken to an area hospital as a precaution.
His paint-soaked dog, meanwhile, was attended to by a Washington state police trooper and a firefighter, who recruited a nearby resident to hose off the dog with some shampoo.
The dog was then taken to an area animal shelter until the owner was able to come and pick him up.
No word on how or if the interior of the SUV will be salvaged (but at least it was a nice, neutral colour).
