A loyal dog stayed by its owner for up to 12 hours after he was killed in a hit-and-run accident. The man was struck by a car on Highway 1 in Santa Cruz, California at some time between 10pm on Thursday and 2am on Friday. He was fatally struck while riding his bicycle and his body left lying by the roadside until being found at 10.45 on Friday morning.

A passer-by spotted the man’s contorted bike in a slightly lower down area by the side of the road, along with his lifeless body and the uninjured dog.

A crate which the man had fixed to the bike for carrying his mutt lay strewn on the ground.

His body had been there for anywhere between eight and 12 hours, the California Highway Patrol told Mercury News.


And his heartbroken pooch, a Cairn terrier mix similar to Toto in the Wizard of Oz, had stayed by his side the entire time.

The man was described as being white and aged about 50, but his name has not yet been released.

The car involved is believed to be a 1999 or 2000 model sedan or a small SUV, possibly green, with damage to the front end.

Anyone with information on the accident should contact CHP  spokeswoman Sarah Jackson at 831-662-0511 or, after hours, call Salinas dispatch at 831-796-2160.
