HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A Harrisburg police dog hurt in a crash that left an officer and a pedestrian seriously injured is set to leave an animal hospital.
The dog, named Thor, suffered a concussion and bruised spleen when the vehicle flipped while pursuing a suspect in Harrisburg on Saturday evening. The crash seriously injured the officer and a pedestrian, whose names have not been released. They remain hospitalized.
Police say charges are pending against the suspect, who was treated for minor injuries.
Investigators say it happened around 6:30 p.m. Saturday and that the officer’s vehicle crashed and flipped on its roof. Conditions on the pedestrian and the officer weren’t immediately available.
The dog’s police partner, a canine named Zeke, was shot in the neck last month while officers pursued a suspect. He’s recovering.
