Dog lost after Iowa crash reunited with owner

SERGEANT BLUFF, Iowa (AP) — A little dog that ran away from a fatal collision on an Iowa interstate has been reunited with his owner.

Momo, a 3-year-old pug-Chihuahua, was put back into the arms of Nicole Browder on Thursday. He’d been found near Sergeant Bluff-Luton High School.

The accident occurred Wednesday when a northbound sport utility vehicle crossed the centerline on Interstate 29 and stuck a southbound semitrailer near Sergeant Bluff. Browder’s father, 55-year-old David Browder, of Cascade, Mont., was killed. Three other people in the SUV were injured.

Nicole Browder says Momo ran from the scene out of fear. She says she wanted to chase him down but couldn’t because she was caught up in the aftermath of the collision.
