An enthusiastic dog is being blamed for a crash that sent a man to the hospital Tuesday.

David Dana was driving south on McKinley Street in a blue compact car with his dog, when the pooch got antsy and hopped into the front, Kennewick police said in a Facebook post.

The sudden distraction sent the car straight into Gabriel Ibarra, who was washing his car on the side of the road shortly after 6:30 p.m.

Ibarra was taken to Trios Southridge Hospital. His injuries were not believed to be life threatening.

Dana was cited for driving on the wrong side of the road and causing a collision.
