Holly Mosley and Heather Huynh of Dallas, Texas were out walking their dogs yesterday when the unthinkable happened. The dog owners and their pets were about to cross an intersection when an SUV made a right turn and ran over Batmite, Mosley’s five-year-old terrier. The driver killed the dog and left the woman injured.
According to NBC News the accident happened at the intersection of Cedar Springs Road and Throckmorton. The driver did not stop to accept responsibility or to offer help, and fled the scene instead.
The horrific accident was captured by Zephy Restraurant’s surveillance camera. It clearly shows how the dog was pinned by the front wheel while the back wheel ran over Mosley’s foot.
Josh Friendman owns the restaurant and witnessed the accident. He immediately rushed over to help the injured parties and transported the dog to an area vet clinic. Unfortunately, it was too late to save Batmite’s life.
“I’m still hurting, my foot still hurts, my arm hurts and my heart is hurting because of the loss of the love of my life,” Mosley said.
The heart broken pet owner filed a police report and hopes the public helps her identify the driver. The person behind the wheel should be held responsible for ending the dog’s life. Anyone with information is asked to call the Dallas Police Department at 214-671-3001.
