Last week, a hit and run driver struck a teen, and killed his puppy in Independence, Missouri. According to KSHB News, someone driving a red Chevrolet Cavalier swerved into 18-year-old Devon Henson, hitting him in the arm…but his eight-week-old puppy, Blue, bore the brunt of the impact.
Henson told the news agency that his puppy was dragged down the street, under the vehicle’s tires – by the time he ran to her side, she was barely breathing. Though Blue was rushed to a veterinarian, the impact had taken its toll and she was gone.
The driver of the car did not stick around to see how injured Henson was…and apparently didn’t care about the young puppy who had just been dragged to her death. Henson’s mom, Claudette, said, “My son could have died, and they weren’t concerned for his safety and didn’t care what happened to our dog.”
Anyone with information about this hit and run incident is asked to reach out to the Independence Police.
