A crash near Maury Road and Route 903 on Saturday left a Levittown couple badly shaken and heartbroken for a time.
The couple was at their Pocono home, as they are most weekends, when they decided to eat out for lunch. All went well until they were on their way back home. That’s when their vehicle was struck head on by another vehicle. The other driver said he was trying to avoid something in the roadway when he crossed over into their lane.
Larry and Mary Kamnik were lucky to have no major injuries, just bruised and shaken, but the crash created havoc in their lives as their 3-year-old chocolate Labrador retriever, “Sam,” ran away in the crash’s aftermath.
The couple’s daughter, Michelle Zabludovsky, turned to social media and several animal rescue groups for help on Sunday morning, posting first on Paws Abbey Alert on Facebook. She also reached out to Hound Hunters of NEPA to help in the search for Sam.
A Jim Thorpe woman saw the posts and spotted the dog near the crash scene.
There was a happy ending to this tale, as Sam was reunited with her owners late Monday morning.
