Loose dog causes tie-up on Ike

April 28, 2010 (MAYWOOD, Ill.) The pit bull was spotted just after 6 a.m. Wednesday near Des Plaines Ave. State police and Ill. Dept of Transportation crews first tracked the dog as it ran east along the shoulder.

The dog ran in and out of traffic on the Ike for about a half hour-- but was not hit by any cars. The dog got off the expressway at First Avenue and took a swim in the Des Plaines River before disappearing into the Miller Meadow Forest Preserve in Maywood.
