He hit it on his way to work this morning. He called me, he couldn't stop and turn around so he had me go see if it needed help. He was so upset. He loves dogs. He didn't have time to stop when it ran in front of him. If you have a dog, please make sure it doesn't run loose, especially at 3 am. I saw that he had a collar (it was a brindle pit bull) and he looked well cared for, I didn't get out or anything, so I don't know if he had tags on. I don't know if we need to contact someone. My poor husband feels like shit. He has never run over an animal before.
I called the non-emergency line. I have to call backafter the animal control officer gets there in the morning. Since it seems to be an issue, I will put it here.
The dog was hit on an acceleration lane for a highway. It is not a safe area to get out att 3am. It is a newer addition, so there is not much lighting. All I could do was pull along side the dog with my hazards on and use a flashlight to look at it. I am assuming he was hit head first, he would have died instantly. It was very graphic. There would have been nothing anyone could have done to save that poor dog.
