Dog (and literally man’s best friend) leads New Hampshire police to crash
Her name is Tinsley, not Lassie. And she’s a good dog. A very good dog that led police to a car crash involving her owner.
It was on January 3, according to a Facebook post from New Hampshire State Police, when one of their troopers was responding to a report of a dog that was loose on an interstate highway.
A spokesman for NHSP told CNN that the dog, Tinsley, looked skittish and scared and that each time the trooper and the Lebanon Police Department got close to her, she kept running further down northbound I-89.
According to the Facebook post, by continuing their attempt to capture Tinsley, the Trooper and the officers came across a portion of a guardrail that had been damaged.
That’s when, the post says, the trooper discovered a truck that had rolled. It was reportedly very damaged, and its occupants had been thrown out of the cab.
They were hypothermic. One of them was the person (owner) of the German Shepard that had led them to the scene of the accident.
The two occupants were hospitalized due to their injuries said CNN. But officials don’t think the dog, Tinsley, was injured in the crash.
