    Stopping for a dog that ran into the road left a woman injured when another vehicle read-ended her stopped car.

    Indiana State Police say 52 year old Peggy St-John of Cloverdale was eastbound on Interstate 70 in Morgan County when a stray dog entered the road. She braked, coming nearly to a stop, when a semitrailer struck her vehicle from behind.

    The incident happened around 9:24 a.m. Monday. St-John was taken to St. Vincent Hospital for neck injuries. The truck driver wasn’t injured.

    Indiana State Police officials say drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the crash, and no one was cited.

    The dog was hit during the accident and died.
