VIDEO: Drivers rescue dog from traffic on Interstate 35E

Posted: Updated:
ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

Traffic ground to a halt on Interstate 35E on Tuesday afternoon near Maryland Avenue after a dog somehow escaped onto the six-lane freeway just before the afternoon rush hour.

The dog managed to make its way all the way across three lanes of traffic to the median. Lines of vehicles formed as multiple motorists corralled the animal away from moving cars, many stopping and getting out of their cars to do so.

Although several drivers tried to lure the dog closer, it hid behind construction barrels and eventually fled into a barrier between the lanes and continued through to the other side of the freeway.

By the time the Minnesota State Patrol arrived at the scene, the dog had made its way to the other side of the divided highway. Luckily, two drivers stopped on the opposite side and were able to coax the dog into a car and wait for troopers to arrive.
