These two dogs traumatised after surviving a horrific traffic accident were snapped waiting in the cold for someone to come and collect them.
The car crash happened in the car in which the dogs’ owners, a man and woman, together with a third dog were travelling along the A61 near the small local community of Dannstadt in Germany’s Rheinland-Pfalz region.
For unknown reasons the Suzuki vehicle, in which the three dogs were travelling apparently without any cage or other restraints, crashed and turned over.
Local police said that the vehicle left the road for unknown reasons, rolled over several times and came to rest on its roof on a nearby rural road.
The accident resulted in the death of one of the dogs, and the male driver and his female passenger were hospitalised. The smaller dog died but the other two dogs who survived were then left tied to the side of the vehicle until relatives could be found to come and collect them.
One eyewitness told local media: “I looked inside the car and I didn’t see any transport box and as far as I can see there weren’t secured inside with a lead either.”
It was not revealed how long the dogs had to remain in the icy cold until relatives of the injured couple turned up to collect them.
The names and ages of the injured were also not revealed, and police are investigating the cause of the crash.
