The CHP said that after the crash, a red Scion XB with Oregon license plates pulled up at the scene to check on the welfare of those involved in the collision.
While coming into contact with an injured accident victim, a Scion man snatched a white year old Terrier from the Acura, placed it in the Scion, and fled the scene before the CHP officers arrived.
The vehicle was tracked down by investigators at a San Francisco address where the missing terrier was and was eventually returned to its rightful owner. The Scion owner was not cooperative in the investigation and the CHP hoped that a passing motorist could have taken a picture of him at the scene of the accident.
