Wait a second… that’s not a car 

Motorists in Shrewsbury were treated to an unusual sight when a large number of hunting dogs strayed onto a busy dual carriageway, causing chaos for drivers.

The dogs accidentally ran onto the A5 in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, on Wednesday afternoon, prompting huntsmen on horseback to chase after them and forcing cars to brake suddenly.

And West Mercia Police said ‘massive traffic problems’ were caused by the incident, with at least one car believed to have suffered ‘extensive’ damage to the front and side, though it is not known how.

‘Massive traffic problems’ were caused by the runaway dogs

‘In all likelihood the dogs collided with the vehicle,’ a West Mercia Police spokeswoman reported a woman, who was driving an Audi A3, as saying.

Police called to the situation at 3.10pm stayed for some time as dogs and horses was ushered off both sides of the carriageway

The huntmaster said to police that he ‘wasn’t told’ if any of the dogs were injured.
