SHOUT OUT: An elderly Alpine couple whose dog wandered off after their car overturned on a Vermont highway yesterday afternoon got him back after a state trooper this morning found the chilly pooch 150 yards or so away.
Vermont State Police said relatives of David and Nancy Andrews were caring for Zorro — who, like his owners, was none the worse for wear after yesterday’s crash on Route 91 in Rockingham.
David L. Andrews, an 83-year-old former orthopedic surgeon and college professor, told police he fell asleep, after which they said the 2010 Honda Accord careened off the road and into a patch of trees, where it flipped and skidded nearly 20 feet.
Neither he nor his 81-year-old sister, Nancy Andrews, were injured seriously, police said.
The small, gray dog was found 12 hours later, walking on the snowy shoulder of the highway, early this morning, State Police said.
