MISSOULA, Mont. - A 2-year-old dog that ran away after a fatal crash on Interstate 90 in western Montana earlier this month has finally been captured.

A Clinton landowner captured Bella at 7:45 a.m. Friday in a live trap baited with Bella's toys, food and some chicken.

Marcia Erickson, who has been helping with the effort to find Bella since the Aug. 5 crash that killed an 8-year-old Seattle boy, set up the live trap after a landowner reported seeing Bella near his barn on Thursday night.

Erickson said the dog was "really skinny" and she was taking her to a veterinarian for a checkup.

The dog belongs to 5-year-old Eli Gamble, who was hurt along with his mother and her partner when their car was struck by a drunken driver.
