State police say the dog is responsible for a morning crash in which a car rolled over and burst into flames, closing down Route 24 northbound for about an hour Monday morning, backing up traffic for approximately five miles.
The crash occurred at about 6:10 a.m. when a man lost control of his Saturn sedan, which flipped and “ignited as it turned,” said West Bridgewater Fire Capt. Kenney May.
“He got out of the car just in time and sustained no injuries,” said May. “Lucky guy.”
State police said the dog jumped on the owner inside the car, causing the accident. The dog was still missing as of about 1:30 p.m.
Authorities closed the entire northbound side of Route 24 until the car fire was extinguished, May said.
The crash occurred near exit 17 in West Bridgewater, and was backed up about five miles, state police estimated.
The scene was clear by 7:15 a.m.
