Robin Little was one of the rescue workers who took a moment to help save "Crash" from being trapped inside a guard rail at Thursday's accident at S.R. 59 and C.R. 700 N.

After the victims of Thursday's accident at S.R. 59 and Co. Rd. 700 N. were taken care of, rescue workers discovered that their job wasn't done.

There was one more victim to rescue: A small, shivering and very frightened kitten.

"We kept hearing a cat crying," Robin Little said. "We looked over the side of the embankment, but saw nothing." "Crash," as christened by the rescue personnel on the scene, was found stuck inside of the guard rail located next to the accident scene.

"We're not exactly sure how it happened, but the kitten was stuck up in there really tight," Little said.

With a little ingenuity and a stick, several of the rescue personnel from Clay County Search and Rescue and Jackson Twn. Vol. Fire Dept. worked to free the little kitten.

"He's just so cute," Little said, adding that the kitten had too much fur to be sure it was a he. "I sure hope that someone will give our 'Crash' here a good home."

Crash was taken to the Clay County Humane Shelter. For information on how to adopt Crash, or any other animal at the shelter, please call 446-5126
