In what appears to be a very shocking incident recently in the outer southeast of Melbourne, was when a dog was captured in footage from the dashcam tumbling out of a moving car.
The dog fell off the moving Toyota Yaris in Melbourne after poking its head out of the window
This heart-stopping video was posted via Dash Cam Owners Australia, showing when the dog was poking its head out of the Toyota Yaris (silver colour) as the car drove through a roundabout in Last Thursday in Berwick.
The brown and white dog reportedly leaned a bit too far over, where it ended up falling out of the car and jumping onto the grass after rolling out onto the road. When the owners of the puppy realized what just happened, they quickly pulled over and ran quickly to save their dog.

Fortunately, the dog didn’t sustain any injury as it was seen walking back to its owner while wagging its tails. The incident is a lesson to all on why it is important to properly restrain dogs in the car when travelling. This rule is also contained in the Agriculture Victoria guidelines.
According to the guidelines, dogs when not restrained can cause road accidents and should not be too close to the driver. It also states in their website that dogs should be disallowed from popping their heads from the car window when travelling. Aside from falling over, the dog could be exposed to injury or infection from dirt participles entering through their nose, eyes and ears.
