Law enforcement dog hit by car in Milton

A law enforcement dog was hit by a car in Milton on Saturday morning, an official said.

The K-9, which does not work for Milton police, was struck on Randolph Avenue near Pleasant Street around 8:30 a.m., Lieutenant Mark Alba said.

In a brief phone interview, Alba declined to say what agency the dog was working for and whether it was on duty at the time of the crash.

The K-9 was taken to New England Animal Medical Center in West Bridgewater with unknown injuries, Alba said.

The dog’s handler was not injured, and the driver that struck the dog is cooperating with police, Alba said. No further information was immediately available Saturday morning.


The incident is under investigation.
