Two-vehicle crash caused by dog

A two-car accident occurred around 9 p.m. on Wednesday after a Conyers man swerved to avoid hitting a dog crossing the road.

Anthony Slack, 40, was driving west on Old Covington Highway approaching Plunket Road when he swerved to miss a dog. Driving his 2003 white Chevrolet Impala, Slack, drifted into the eastbound lane, crashing into an oncoming vehicle.

Raymond Munger, 35, of Oxford, was driving a 1998 white Dodge Dakota that struck Slack's vehicle.

Both vehicles had extensive damage to the front end of their vehicles according to reports.

Slack was taken to Grady Memorial and Munger to Atlanta Medical Center but did not suffer serious injuries. There were also reportedly passengers in both the Dodge and Impala; the extent of their injuries are unknown at this time.

According to reports, alcohol did not appear to be a factor.

The dog was found dead at the scene when authorities arrived.
