MEDINA COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - A monkey in distress is no more thanks to a trooper in Westfield Township.

A truck driving hauling meat from a processing plant drove into a ditch off Friendsville Road Monday evening. In the accident aftermath, the rig operator's pet monkey scampered up a nearby telephone pole and refused to come down.

A trooper managed to coax the monkey down to safety.

No word on if the driver will face charges stemming from the accident.
