ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - An Albuquerque police officer was involved in a crash late Wednesday night after seeing a Mustang race through a red light. Turns out the driver of that car was rushing her dog to the hospital.
Just before midnight an officer was near Montgomery and Tramway looking for drunks drivers. He witnessed the car run the red light through the intersection and began to pursue the vehicle, turning on his lights and sirens to proceed through the red light. That's when he ran into another vehicle.
Both the officer and driver of that car are OK.
The driver of the Mustang was subsequently pulled over where officers discovered that the woman was taking their dog, who had just been hit by a car, to the pet hospital. Officers allowed the woman to proceed.
An earlier report indicated that the driver was under investigation for DWI, but that was incorrect.
If you're looking for something fun to do with the kids this weekend, or if you just want to get into the holiday spirit yourself, head out the Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum.
This is something I would have wanted to do as a kid during my winter break: Destination Moon Camp! Here to tell us all about this is Michelle Watkins with the Challenger Learning Center New Mexico.
Dinner rolls are a wonderful compliment to those holiday dishes, and shaping dough is quite easy.
