PRICE, Utah — Thirteen puppies that were being transported to their new homes several states away are safe after the van they were in rolled on Interstate 15 in Price early Friday morning.

The puppies were in a van going from Texas to Oregon, where they had been adopted by their future families, a Utah Highway Patrol spokesperson said.

As it was passing Price in central Utah around 2 a.m., the van went off the road and rolled onto its side. The cause of the accident is under investigation; no further details were provided.

Two people were in the van, and one sustained minor injuries. The other was uninjured.

Fortunately, none of the puppies were injured.

The Carbon County Animal Shelter is helping to house the puppies until transportation can be arranged.
