A senior dog died days after being hit by a UPS truck. According to WYFF News, the 10-hear-old Chihuahua, named Sam, was in his yard in Fountain Hill, South Carolina, when the delivery driver ran over him with the truck.
Sam’s owner, Taylor Hogan, believes that the driver was negligent because Sam was on the grass portion of her lawn when the driver backed over him, crushing both of his legs. She told the news agency, “My dog was not in the road. He was not even on the driveway.’ She added, “He was in our lawn on the grass. They backed over him. They need to pay these vet bills.”
Hogan paid thousands to treat Sam’s injuries…and he ultimately died a few days later – she said,
“The vet thinks Sam died from a blood clot. He never left my arms when I got him home and he stared into my eyes the entire time. I held him and kissed him and sang to him and talked about all our favorite memories. I lost my best friend and the love of my life, he was my whole world.”
Hogan claims that the company refused to apologize, or pay any of the veterinary bills – UPS told WYFF News that the incident remains under investigation.
