Witnesses Say Man Hit By Car Was Trying To Save Dog

POSTED: 6:40 am EDT June 1, 2007


ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. -- A man chasing after his dog was hit by a car and killed Thursday night in Altamonte Springs. The man, believed to be in his 50, was trying to save his little dog when he lost his own life overnight.

Eyewitnesses said the victim was using a payphone on SR-436 near Wymore Road and was in the middle of a heated conversation at the phone when he put the phone down.

"He was holding the dog. A brown dog. The dog got loose. He went to run after the dog," said Gloria Allerich, an eyewitness to the accident.

That's when a woman drove by and hit and killed him. According to those who saw the accident, the man didn't have his shoelaces tied and started to fall forward when the car approached in his direction.

"He hit the windshield and then his body swung around to the back of the car," Ellerich said.

The man died instantly. Altamonte Springs traffic homicide investigators were reviewing the case to see if excessive speed or any other factors played a role in the tragic chain of events.

Police have not released the name of the man. Reports said the man may have been a vagrant. The dog was not injured in the accident.

Sad story, but it makes sense. It doesn't sound like the guy had much to live for except his dog, so he did what anyone of us would have done if what we valued most was in danger.
