The Waterloo Fire Department, Monroe County Sheriff’s Department and Monroe County EMS personnel responded to a car that had driven onto a rock pile near FF and Hanover roads around 5 p.m. Monday.

A late model silver Chevrolet Camaro driven by a 50-year-old Cahokia woman, ran up onto the rock pile marking the dead end of short access road off FF Road near Hanover Road. The driver told emergency personnel on the scene she became distracted when her dog started having seizures.

The driver was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A veterinarian from Mueller Veterinary Services came to the scene to take the dog and transport it to the animal hospital.
