Dog Survives I-5 RV Crash

Look closely starting at 0.39 for a 'white dog' on the highway 20ft. in front of the RV immediately following the crash...., a couple seconds (frames) later the dog heads back to the front of the damaged RV. May have to 'zoom in' to see the dog 0.39 thru 0.45.

Not the first time I have seen this, but sure did miss the dog when I did.
They sure were driving like it was rush hour in the big city.

Everett Fire Department released following statement on day of crash (2/15/23): "Firefighters extricated two patients from the motorhome, one of which was trapped and pinned inside. Both occupants were transported to the hospital with serious injuries."

I couldn't find any official references of the dog seen at the crash sight.

According to this article from local news station KING5 a passing vehicle rescued the dog.

We have some friends who were hit from behind in their travel trailer. Lost control , flipped twice with tt still attached. They were banged up but no major injuries. Their dog got out after all that and ran off. He was found the next day by volunteers who searched all night.
They recently purchased a new car and camper are are back on the road .

The driver of the white vehicle sure kept his cool and did a great job of staying in control.

The right side of the RV had damage already. Obviously the driver/owner hadnít learned their lesson yet.

Wowzer! Bad driving begets wrecks.

We have a large platform on the left half of the back bench seat for a dog area with a bed and blankets. The dog is in a harness which is always chained to an anchor within the car. In the event of a crash, none of us will go flying out. And he cannot jump out when we are stopped. Works really well.

We travel with our 2 small under 20 lb pups in separate crates in the back seat.
The crates are secured to the seat belt anchors.

They are happy to ride there as long as we have a pit stop every 2-3 hours. That's almost my limit also!

We have a friend who had his large dog in the back seat loose and the dog went out the part way down window while he was negotiating a round-a-bout. Before he could stop a truck hit and killed the dog.

I also noticed that accounts of the accident varied from different sources (articles).

In my post (in quotes) I elected to reference the official released statement from the Everett Fire Department who extricated the occupants.

That was a semi (notice the hood pull handle) not a car, that the idiot MH driver cut short. If it were a car it wouldn't have ended that bad for him. Lucky for the other driver...he was a big truck...although he could have given way a bit. Nothing was to his/her right side.
