A seatbelt may have saved the life of a woman who took a wild ride Friday night when she swerved to miss a dog in front of Kidd Ford on Manchester Highway.“It would have been a lot worse if she hadn’t been wearing her seatbelt,” said Highway Patrolman Kyle Herrin, who investigated the crash.The driver of the 2012 Nissan Altima, Jennifer Pursley, was taken to River Park Hospital and treated for noncritical injures. The accident happened around 9:30 p.m. on a night where emergency service workers were hustling to answer wreck calls around the city and county. A misting rain made for hazardous road conditions.Pursley told the trooper she swerved to avoid a dog that was in her path on Manchester Highway and lost control on the rain-slick road.
