Michelle Reilly said she was driving pretty fast on the highway when she saw the dog plastered against a concrete divider on the road. She said she then immediately put her car in reverse to check on the dog.

"I stopped as quickly as I could, and almost ran on the shoulder to do so," Reilly said. "[I] backed up very carefully, and got out and just had to walk over to him the rest of the way."

Reilly and her family took the pup in and named him Autobahn, which means highway in German.
