Her Volkswagen Bug left the roadway and rolled over at least once.

Shortly after the crash, NewsSourceLA said, Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputy Mercer was traveling northbound on San Francisquito Road, transporting horses, and radioed for assistance.

While the driver was being treated for any injuries, Mercer took care of the frightened puppy.

There were initial reports of people possibly trapped inside the overturned vehicle, but firefighters found no one trapped, Fire Department spokesman Austin Bennett said.

Although paramedics did not take the injured person to the hospital, an ambulance with a private company was called to transfer the patient.
