Massachusetts State Police have issued an update on an injured K9 involved in a crash this week.
According to MSP, on Tuesday, December 24, 2019, a Massachusetts Environmental Police K9 Officer was conducting a hunter check in the woods along I-195 in Fairhaven when his cruiser was struck by an oncoming vehicle. The cruiser was parked in the grass beyond the breakdown lane with K9 Hank inside.
Aside from being a bit shaken up, K9 Hank fortunately suffered only minor injuries and was able to make it home on Christmas afternoon to spend the holidays with his family. K9 Hank will be taking a few days of much needed rest but should be back to serving the Commonwealth very soon.
The driver was seriously injured and was transported to Rhode Island Hospital.
