Maine State Police dog Ibo.

The driver of a vehicle involved in a one-car crash in Lebanon was located after a state police dog tracked his whereabouts, according to an Instagram post by state police.

A Maine state trooper responded Tuesday night to a reported crash on West Lebanon Road and discovered the driver had fled the scene on foot.

The police dog, Ibo, was sent to the scene and found the driver, covered in blood, about three-quarters of a mile from the crash, in thick woods.

The driver, a 22-year-old man from Farmington, New Hampshire, had significant injuries from the crash, in which the vehicle went off the road and rolled over.

He was disoriented and intoxicated, according to state police, but was cooperative. He was taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland for treatment of his injuries.

Criminal charges against the driver are pending the results of a blood test.
