Police seeking witnesses, video in hit and run where dog was killed (2)

Lethbridge Police are asking witnesses or anyone who may have video of a hit and run collision Sunday afternoon where a woman and her dog were struck by a vehicle, to come forward.

On March 24, at approximately 1:16 p.m., police responded to a report that a woman and her dog had been struck by a vehicle in the area of 20 Avenue and Palm Rd S and the dog had been killed. The 33-year-old reported her Yorkie Terrier had gotten away from her and both were struck on 20 Avenue by a dark coloured vehicle that failed to stop. The woman was knocked to the ground but did not sustain injuries and no medical treatment was required.

Police canvassed the area for video surveillance and witnesses, but their efforts did not yield any results.
