A pair of dog trainers and their trainee are safe after barely escaping a strange car accident. Todd Jurek was walking down the sidewalk with a blindfolded apprentice trainer and O'Neil, a dog preparing for his final test before becoming a service animal for the blind. It was the dog's response that saved their lives.

"He probably heard the commotion before the window popped," Jurek told The Marin Independent Journal.

O'Neil alerted them to a 93-year-old woman who had accidentally put her car in reverse. The car jumped the curb and sped backwards down the sidewalk towards the trio. They made it out of the way just in time, as the car eventually smashed a store window and ended up on the other side of the street. Amazingly, no one was hurt in the crash.
