The accident happened around 11 p.m. Wednesday as the vehicle was headed southbound on I-77 at US Route 30.

According to police, the 2000 Chevrolet Tracker left the road and went 100 feet over an embankment and into water, trapping four people inside.

Rescue crews went into the water to attempt to rescue the victims.

Passenger Kymberlie Guthrie, 26, was listed in critical condition at Akron General Medical Center. Emelyn Guthrie, 1, was in stable condition.

Several officers were treated at Aultman Hospital for exposure from being in the water during the rescue.

Meanwhile, the Tuscarawas County Humane Society launched a search for a dog they believe was with the family at the time of the crash.

They said the dog's name is Aspen, and he was wearing a red harness at the time. He wasn't found in or around the vehicle after the incident.

Anyone with information on the dog is asked to call the Tuscarawas County Humane Society.
