    Video removed - FedEx drives over neighbor's dog, no brakes, doesn't stop

    Love dogs here but as someone with experience with these matters nothing will happen to the driver legally. Maybe FedEx would give some money as good faith or for generositys sake but definitely not required. It's a terrible thing for the dog but it does happen.
