Life on the beltway

This morning I was driving to work on the beltway. The traffic on my side (the outer loop) was so slow that I got to watch a dog running loose on the inner loop and someone on foot chasing him. Weird but I figured maybe the guy lived fairly close to the beltway and somehow his dog got onto it and he was trying to get it before it got run over. Then I drove maybe 500 feet more and I saw another guy running toward his truck which was parked on the side of the road. So now I picture the two guys and dog in the cab of truck. For some reason they pull over and dog gets out and starts running.

This should screw up traffic for a while. On the other hand I saw a police car with lights running headed toward the holdup so hopefully traffic was restored at some point.
