(Newser) – Tina Springer was a passenger in Brent Parks' pickup truck as it stopped for a train in Enid, Oklahoma, Thursday. Unfortunately, a dog and a gun were also in the car. Parks' yellow lab was in the backseat and jumped onto the folding center console, underneath which there was a .22 caliber handgun. The gun discharged, shooting Springer in the left thigh, police say. Parks, who told police he does not usually drive with the gun loaded, used his belt as a tourniquet to stop the bleeding, KFOR reports. Springer, 44, who is the caregiver for Parks, 79, was treated at a hospital, the News & Eagle reports. No foul play is suspected, KOCO reports. (Read more strange stuff stories.)
