Dog hurt in crash survives in wild

A hunting dog survived three weeks living wild with a broken leg after a car crash in Canterbury that seriously injured two people.

Police said a Canterbury woman had been charged with careless driving causing injury after the accident north of Ashburton in May.

The woman allegedly tried to overtake and collided head-on with Christchurch man Colin Hill, who was returning from a hunting trip and had his five hunting dogs in the back of his ute.

A man and woman in the car behind Hill lost control of their vehicle and were badly injured, and Hill's dogs were scattered across State Highway 1. Hill and partner Olivia Bishop, who live in New Brighton, pleaded for people to report sightings of their dog Brin, which disappeared after the accident.MORE>>
