A routine truck enforcement stop took a sad turn last week when a truck driver’s dog managed to escape — but a California Highway Patrol officer went out of her way to make sure that the story had a happy ending.
“On Friday May 4, 2018, in the afternoon a Commercial Sergeant made enforcement stop on a semi-truck Southbound US-101 going down the Cuesta Grade for unsafe speed. During the enforcement stop, a little Yorkie Chihuahua mix (Daisy), fell out of the semi and ran northbound on the shoulder. The Commercial Sergeant drove north one mile and started searching for Daisy with no luck. He was relieved by Sergeant Robyn Lescher, who after two hours located Daisy, calmed her down and was able to catch her. SGT Lescher took Daisy home for the night and that next morning met the owner at Shandon to reunite the two. SGT Lescher defiantly saved Daisy’s life! Thank you SGT Lescher for going above and beyond and instilling Public Trust!
The following is the post we received on our Facebook Page:
“I just wanted to tell you guys you have some pretty amazing officers working here. Yesterday my little yorkie chihuahua mix Daisy fell out of my husband’s semi truck on US highway 101 and got scared and ran off one officer whom I don’t know the name of drove a mile out back in the direction she ran to look for her but couldn’t find her. Then an amazing woman named Sargent Lescher came to my girls rescue. It took two attempts but she finally caught her. I’ve had Daisy for almost 7 years now for my depression and was completely devastated. She wouldn’t have made it on that busy freeway if it wasn’t for Sargent Lescher. I am so grateful for everything the officers did to bring my baby home. Thank you so much San Luis Obispo CHP.””
