A Colorado man reportedly crashed his plane into a Toyota Prius and then ran away from the scene, the Boulder Camera reports. The pilot's excuse: He was worried about his dogs, who were locked in his car at the airport, the Toyota driver tells the paper. The pilot turned himself in a few hours later, after police launched a multi-agency search. The local prosecutor is considering whether to file charges.
Ken Marcoux, of Gunbarrel, said Joe Curtis, 67, called him Wednesday evening and told him if he had waited to talk to investigators at the crash scene, several more hours would have passed before he would have been able to break away to get his dogs back home.
Marcoux isn't buying Curtis' explanation, which he said "boggled his mind."
