BAKER COUNTY — A dog has helped his owner get rescued after a car crash in a steep ravine in mountainous Northeast Oregon, authorities said.

Brandon Garrett was driving with his four dogs on a remote U.S. Forest Service road on June 2 when he crashed into a ravine below, the Baker County Sheriff's Office said in a news release on Facebook. One of the dogs traveled nearly 4 miles to the campsite where Garrett was staying with family, which alerted them that something was wrong, the release said.
