Dog hero leads police to DUI crash
HARTFORD, Vt. (WCAX) - Police say the driver was drunk in a serious crash they found thanks to a dog.
Police say a pickup truck crashed Monday around 10:15 p.m. on Interstate 89 north in Hartland. But that’s not what brought them to the scene. A German shepherd was spotted on the I-89 bridge that connects Vermont and New Hampshire.
Police tried to catch “Tinsley” and ended up following the dog to a crashed truck. Two men were ejected and seriously injured.
Now, police say the driver, Cameron Laundry, 31, of Hartland, was driving intoxicated. He’ll be in court in February for DUI and possibly other charges. Laundry is Tinsley’s owner.
Police say Justin Connors, 40, was in the passenger seat. His bulldog died in the crash.
