Dog Remains for Hours in Spot Where Owner Died

Share

After a woman was fatally struck by a semi-truck while walking her dog Paco, her four-legged friend refused to leave the spot where the accident occurred.

The incident occurred at 6:15 a.m. this past Friday near a Jacksonville, Fla. gas station when Kelly Black was walking her dog. After she was hit, Paco remained next to her. Even as she was taken away, the dog, wearing a red bandana, would not leave the scene of the crime. Eventually, the family took Paco away and he joined Black’s other dog, Sammy.

“[Paco] is not too happy, and Sammy is not either, because she’s not there with them right now,” Black’s mother Pat Johnson told WJAX that. “My heart is hurting very much. I don’t understand why this happened.”

Surveillance cameras show the driver of the truck pulling out of a gas station when he hit Black. He then proceeded to drag her more than 30 feet.

Officers are still looking for the truck driver.

“I want everybody to remember that Kelly had a heart of gold,” Johnson added. “And she was a loving good person and she loved everybody.”
