Dog Transported to Veterinary Clinic After Collision in Gaithersburg

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services (MCFRS) responded to a collision Sunday around 7:30 p.m. where both an adult driver and their dog sustained injuries, according to Chief Spokesperson Pete Piringer.

The two-car collision occurred in Gaithersburg on southbound I-270 between Montgomery Village and I-370 before Exit 9.  

While MCFRS EMS took the driver to a nearby hospital by ambulance, the engine team brought the dog to an emergency veterinary clinic on Perry Parkway, Piringer said in a tweet. The dog sustained a severe leg injury and the driver faced non-life-threatening injuries. 

Twitter users responded to Piringer’s updates showing appreciation for MCFRS taking the time to ensure the dog was cared for.
