MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – A dog is recovering after being rescued from a crash in Murfreesboro over the weekend.

Jack, a Jack Russell Terrier, was thrown into the front windshield when the car he was riding in hit a power pole along Franklin Road around 7:30 a.m. Sunday. Jack was found in the floorboard of the vehicle's front passenger side with lacerations and trauma to his head and unable to move his back legs.

Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department's Ladder 9 used extra precaution while removing him from the vehicle. He was then wrapped up in a warm coat, and taken to the 24-Hour Animal Medical Center on River Rock Boulevard.

Later in the day, Ladder 9's Captain/Shift Inspector Mark McCluskey called to check on Jack, and found that Jack had suffered a concussion but his bleeding was not due to internal injuries.

He was listed in serious, but stable condition.

The driver in the crash was unhurt.
