THREE dogs and a driver had a miraculous escape after the car they were in crashed into a lorry in Worcester late last night.

Firefighters, an ambulance crew and a recovery vehicle were called to the crash just before 11.30pm on the A4440 Crookbarrow Way.

The driver was able to get out of the car by themselves and was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

One of the dogs was trapped in the car’s footwell and had to be released by firefighters.

A spokesman from Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said: “We believe it was a vet responding to a call”.

Three Dogs and a driver ???????????????

NO NO NO NO

A person - a human being - survived the crash which should have been the headline and incidental to that, three domesticated wild animals also survived.

It doesn't say much for the priorities of the public that the headline writer actually knows that the three dogs survival will attract far more attention than the survival of a human - maybe a mother or father, maybe a son or daughter, husband, family man, grandma to 15 - it doesn't really matter - the headline writer did his job correctly - the public's priority would be the pavement fouling hounds.

So your gripe is really about dogs fouling pavements and it took a whole paragraph to spit it out.

They left a lot of facts out of that story - The lorry is a recovery truck and was being operated my brother - He had one lucky escape as he was stood just where that car is seconds earlier. Having spoken with him about it, I am certain that the full story would reveal a whole lot more to your readers!!

I assume that the police would be concluding on an investigation, so it wouldn't be appropriate for me to elaborate at this time. But it highlights the dangers that our Emergency services, recovery workers, and highways contractors face when they are out on the roads providing assistance.
