Chuck Gates reunited with lost dog after wife killed in crash

A man injured in a crash that killed his wife was reunited with one of his displaced dogs today. 
 
Chuck and Sheila Gates were on the way home towards Watsonville after visiting their newborn grandson, when their vehicle was hit by another car on Highway 46 and Holloway Road in Lost Hills. 
 
Sheila was killed in the accident, and Chuck is currently in stable condition at Kern Medical Center. 
 
Two of their dogs were lost during the scene of the accident - Tessy, a tri-colored Corgi, and Gracie, a small brown Chihuahua with white around her neck.
 
Chuck was reunited with Tessy Tuesday.
 
A friend of the family told 23ABC that Tessy was found in an Almond orchard off of Higway 46 by a woman and her daughter.
