Pit Bull Stands By Owner In Tanker Crash
Loyalty Proven By Man’s Best Friend

POSTED: November 3, 2007

EAST LYME, Conn. — One canine certainly fulfilled the role of man’s best friend on Friday.

Witnesses described seeing a tanker truck barrel through the median into oncoming traffic, killing three people and injuring three others on Interstate 95 in East Lyme late Friday morning. The tanker struck a tractor-trailer and at least four cars and overturned.



As chaos broke out on I-95, a heroic pit bull remained calm, sitting in the front seat of a tractor-trailer hit by a tanker truck. As the truck crumbled, the dog stood tall, staying beside his owner until help arrived.
