Police are appealing for information after a dog was hit and killed by a car on the A14 at Nacton yesterday evening.
Officers received reports of four dogs running loose on the road at around 7.25pm yesterday, Thursday August 2, on the eastbound carriageway close to the bridge leading to Alnesbourne Priory.
A police spokesman confirmed that one of the dogs was struck by a car and later died.
The vehicle which collided with the animal failed to stop at the scene leading officers to appeal for the driver to come forward.
The driver, or any witnesses to the collision, are asked to contact the PHQ Roads Policing and Firearms Operations Team on 101, quoting reference CAD 402 of August 2.
A black Labrador remains in a serious condition following a collision on the eastbound carriageway between Copdock and Wherstead which happened shortly before 10.30am on Wednesday, August 1.
