Strathcona County firefighters worked with local vets to save a dog who was pinned during a collision late last week.

On Thursday (Feb. 9), a three-vehicle crash happened on Baseline Road, with an SUV ending up on its side.

Two off-duty firefighters noticed the crash and immediately began to free people from the vehicles.

When emergency services arrived, they noticed a small dog who was pinned by heavy items in the trunk of the SUV. Firefighters used hydraulic spreaders to access the trunk and rescue the dog.

Firefighters carried the dog to Mills Haven Vet, which was nearby the scene of the accident. The vet staff stayed open late to provide care for the dog.

The dog ended up recovering from its injuries, and no other major injuries were reported.
