Berks community demands justice after dog is killed in hit-and-run

Demanding justice

MUHLENBERG TWP., Pa. - Neighbors in one Berks County community are demanding justice after a motorist hit and killed a dog, and just drove away.

It happened Friday afternoon in the rear parking lot of the K-mart on North Fifth Street Highway in Muhlenberg Township.

A gray terrier got away from its owner and ran into the parking lot.

Residents are outraged that the driver didn't stop.

"You could least stop and be courteous," Patrick Coller said. "Let the party know that the dog was hurt. Just to take off was wrong."

Anyone with information on the vehicle or the driver is asked to call Muhlenberg police.
