NORTH FORSYTH – A family was reunited with its pet dog Monday afternoon after she ran away after being in a single-vehicle rollover crash in north Forsyth on Sunday that sent the driver to the hospital.
Around 7:30 p.m. May 7, Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, Fire Department and Central EMS personnel responded to an accident on Matt Highway (Hwy. 369 west) to the west of Dr. Bramblett Road after a 23-year-old man, whose sole passenger was the dog, reportedly lost control of his vehicle, which subsequently rolled upside-down, according to Deputy Doug Rainwater, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office.
The man was transported to a hospital with what were described as non-life threatening injuries.
Drugs and alcohol are not suspected as factors in the crash, Rainwater said.
No charges had been filed as of Monday afternoon, though an investigation into the incident remains active.
The driver’s sister-in-law told the Forsyth County News on Monday that Midnight, a black terrier mix, was found by a resident who saw social media posts about the wreck and the missing pet.
Midnight has since been reunited to her family.
