Car Drives Several Miles With Dog Trapped By Axle

DANIA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — South Florida firefighters came to the rescue of a dog that traveled 5 miles while trapped under the hood of a car.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office says firefighters were called Thursday afternoon to Dania Beach to free the dog. The animal had been trapped between the car’s axle and steering mechanism.

A sheriff’s office spokesman says the dog suffered no injuries, even though it had been driven roughly 5 miles from Hallandale Beach.

It wasn’t immediately clear how the dog became trapped.
