A car crash in Montgomery County on Monday trapped victims in the wreckage. They required extrication, and the rescue had at least one seemingly uncommon aspect: It resulted in a trip to an animal hospital, according to the county fire and rescue service.

One human, described only as an adult, was trapped after the collision, which occurred about 4:45 p.m. on MacArthur Boulevard, said Pete Piringer, spokesman for the county fire and rescue service. Also trapped after the crash at Walhonding Road, in the Brookmont area, was a dog, he said.

Both crash victims were seriously injured, Piringer said. The human was taken to a hospital. The dog was taken to a veterinary hospital in the Friendship Heights area.

Further details were not immediately available.
