The Highway Patrol says an accident Saturday night on Interstate 70 was caused by a frisky feline.
According to State Trooper Jody Sawyers, the driver of a red pick up truck was driving westbound around mile marker 139, when the man’s cat jumped into his lap, causing him to lose control and go into a ditch.
Both the driver, and the cat are ok.
The driver, who has yet to be identified, was taken to Good Samaritan hospital in fair condition.
The crash remains under investigation, and no charges have been filed yet.
