DENVER, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have rescued a dog from a car wreck in northeast Iowa that also injured two people.
The Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office says the young female mastiff was found Monday trapped against the dashboard of an overturned pickup in Denver. The dog was in the pickup before its collision with another vehicle.
Emergency personnel used special equipment to free the dog. She was able to walk.
The pickup driver, 32-year-old John Bliss, of Readlyn, received cuts and bruises. The other driver, 46-year-old Caroline Ledeboer, of Cedar Falls, received multiple injuries, but additional information was not released. Both were treated at a hospital.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports Bliss was cited for disobeying a stop sign and having no insurance. He told authorities the dog had distracted him.
