HOUSTON, Texas (KHOU) — An injured yellow lab along a busy freeway in Texas didn’t stand a chance, until one man heard about a problem in the road over the radio.

Rickey Young was in his truck, when he heard reports cautioning drivers of a dog in the freeway. Young immediately went to the area to check on the dog.

It was all caught on traffic cameras.

The dog backed away from Young at first, until he pulled out a sandwich. She was soon in his truck and headed to a veterinarian’s office.

The dog ended up having broken bones and internal bleeding, and veterinarians operated this weekend.

She is expected to be OK.
