*A woman was killed in a hit-and-run accident, and the only one by her side was her dog; who refused to leave his owner.
Kelly Black, 42, was hit by a truck while she walked her dog Paco on Friday morning around 6 a.m. ET. The incident happened in Jacksonville, Florida, and the truck is said to have dragged the woman underneath the vehicle.
“It appears that she was possibly struck by a tractor trailer and it’s unknown if the driver knew that he struck the victim,” a police spokesman told reporters Friday.
Reporters say it was a heartbreaking scene, as they filmed Paco, depressed, and laying on the street.
Paco stayed by his owner’s side while she died. He didn’t even move when the police came to secure the scene and cover the dead woman’s body.
So far, Paco is believed to be the only witness to the crime, according to police. But Pat Johnson, mother to Black, told Tucson News Now she hopes someone will come forward.
