At 4 p.m. on Feb. 28, Lloyd Manchester was walking his dog, Jake, in the back alley beside the Boys and Girls Club when a blue SUV backed out of the parking lot and hit Jake.
"I went to pull my dog away, but he kept backing up pretty fast.
I kept banging on the side window until he eventually stopped, after hitting my dog," said Manchester.
The driver did get out of the car, but what happened next shocked Manchester.
"I said, 'We need to get my dog to a vet,' and he replied, 'I've got a $70,000 vehicle with leather interior. I'm not going to put that dog in my vehicle.'"
Manchester said the man said he was going to get a vet, got back into his car, almost hit Jake again and never came back.
"I was in shock. I didn't even get the licence number - it happened so fast," he said.
Jake, who was 12 years old, died the next day because his internal injuries were too severe. As well, Manchester's foot was crushed in the incident from trying to stop the vehicle from backing up.
He described the man as being an older, white male with grey hair. He's hoping someone who saw the accident or who is a regular at the Boys and Girls Club recognizes the vehicle.
