Driver and dog covered in paint after particularly messy crash
The pair ended up caked in emulsion after the consignment of paint burst open upon impact, covering the unwitting occupants and making a Jackson Pollock-esque piece out of the stricken SUV.> The driver suffered minor injuries and was later taken to hospital after he careered off a road in Washington State.
The driver's Labrador mix also received a thorough dousing but was soon restored to her former glory thanks to help from a local animal charity.
Trooper Russ Winger teamed up with an off-duty firefighter to take care of the animal, which had been turned grey from all the different paints.
"She looked great after the clean-up, wagging her tail," he said.
