Travis singer Fran Healy says there was “so much blood” after he was “mauled” by a runaway sausage dog he tried to save from the middle of a car crash.

The musician said it happened in Los Angeles – where he now lives – and that he had to drive to hospital while bleeding.

Healy described the bizarre incident on Twitter alongside a picture of his injured hand.

He said he jumped out of his car after seeing three other vehicles “jackknifed” near his home and a daschund running “from the middle of the chaos”.

“Cars bomb down our hill and it would have been toast. So I tried to pick it up and it mauled the s*** out of my left hand.

“I held on, hoping to chuck it into our porch but then I slipped and it bolted off,” said Healy.

The 48-year-old said a neighbour called an ambulance but a fire engine “with 5 Calvin Klein models” turned up and suggested he go to A&E.
