    The SUV left the pavement and crashed into the tree line beside I-89 southbound and, after the two human occupants were extricated and placed into an ambulance, troopers and members of the Hopkinton Fire Department ended up caring for two dogs and eventually turning them over to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals at their facility on Silk Farm Road in Concord for safekeeping.
