Travis singer Fran Healy says there was “so much blood” after he was “bitten” by a runaway dachshund in the middle of a car accident.
The musician said it happened in Los Angeles, where he now lives, and that he had to drive to the hospital while bleeding.
Healy described the strange incident on Twitter next to a photo of his injured hand.
He said he jumped out of his car after seeing three other vehicles “stabbed” near his home and a daschund running “from the middle of the chaos.”
“Cars bombard our hill and it would have been toasted. So I tried to pick it up and it tore the shit out of my left hand.
“I held on, hoping to throw him on our porch, but then I slipped and he shot out,” Healy said.
The 48-year-old man said a neighbor called an ambulance, but a fire truck “with 5 Calvin Klein models” appeared and suggested he go to the ER.
Healy, whose hits with his band Travis include Why Does It Always Rain On Me? and Sing – tweeted that the doctors cleaned his finger, but that it is “very sore.”
The star added: “The dog … is fine. He was cornered at the foot of the hill and the owner, who lives in the former home of Stevie Nicks (pop pickers), was reunited.”
