There was not enough time for the driver of a Nissan Versa traveling northbound on Bryant to avoid hitting the Chrysler. The collision sent the Nissan spinning and it collided with a Mercury Cougar.
The dog, whose name was “T-Bone,” is believed to have been riding shotgun in the Versa. T-Bone suffered a cut lip and a cut near his left eye. What T-Bone really wanted, however, was water. The crash had shaken him up a little.

Police issued a warning to the driver of the Chrysler for failure to yield the right-of-way when making a left turn.
