A much-loved pet chihuahua is lost in Northamptonshire today after its owner was in a car crash.

Pedro the black and tan chihuahua escaped after an accident this morning on the A43 near Moulton.

The two-year-old family pet belongs to a couple from Didcot, Oxfordshire.

But today (January 17), Pedro is now loose in Northamptonshire after his owner was involved in a crash this morning.

The collision - which involved a car and a lorry - happened at the roundabout of the A43 and Overstone Road near Moulton.

The male involved in the crash was reportedly taken to Horton Hospital and has since been discharged with no serious injuries.

Pedro's owners ask anyone who spots him to not chase him as he is very timid and to instead call 07450 405653. Alternatively, a page for Pedro has been set up on doglost.co.uk.
