Woman and Dog Struck by Car

Police tell me a woman and her dog were both seriously injured tonight about 9 p.m., when they were struck by a red Ford Mustang while leaving the city dog park on VFW Highway between Bridge Street and the Hunts Falls Rotary.
The woman suffered serious but non life-threatening injuries and was taken to Lowell General Hospital.
The dog, seen below, was helped by a pair of veterinary technicians who were in the area until animal control showed up and took the dog to Bulger Animal Hospital in North Andover.


Sheila Chappell, on the left lives nearby and ran to help. Chastity Baldwin, of Lowell, was driving by when she saw the hurt dog.
Both women said they were not sure how the dog was doing. He appeared to be seriously hurt.
Police said no charges were filed, though the crash remains under investigation.
