Chalong Police were called to respond to an accident on Chao Fa East Rd near Land & Houses Park Phuket at around noon.
At the scene, officers found a Mitsubishi Pajero lying on its side next to a downed street light pole.
The driver of the car, 24-year-old Choukwan Pattanakitviboon, told police that she was heading towards Phuket Town when a dog suddenly ran in front of her car.
The woman swerved to avoid hitting the dog, but lost control of her vehicle, which slammed into a streetlamp and flipped onto its side.
The dog escaped unhurt, while Ms Choukwan suffered a minor injury to her a arm.
Police have yet to confirm whether or not she will face any charges for the accident.
