New Jersey police found no ID on an unconscious 64-year-old man struck by an SUV as he was crossing the street — but they discovered where he lived thanks to his dog.
Police said Mr. Wrinkles, an American bulldog, led them to his owner’s house after the incident Wednesday night in Fair Lawn.
“The dog wanted to keep walking, so they allowed the dog to keep walking and turns out he lives about five blocks from where the crash occurred,” Fair Lawn Police Sgt. Brian Metzler told WPIX-TV. “The dog led them right to the house.”
