Police in Bergen County say a dog helped officers find the home of a pedestrian who was hit by a vehicle.
Fair Lawn police say the pedestrian was crossing Berdan Avenue at Sunnyside Drive when he was hit Wednesday night by a 2006 Ford Escape while walking his American bulldog “Mr. Wrinkles.”
The man, who didn't have any ID, was taken to a hospital for treatment of head and leg injuries.
Police say that "Mr. Wrinkles" was not hurt and led officers to the man's home about five blocks away. Police were then able to notify the 64-year-old victim’s family.
The driver of the Ford remained at the scene and was taken to a hospital for treatment of chest and arm injuries.
The intersection where the incident happened was closed for a time while police investigated the crash.
The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
