When reporter Russell Colborn arrived on the scene of a tragic car accident, he didn’t expect to see this…
A 42-year-old woman named Kelly Black was hit and dragged by a semi-truck backing out of a gas station while she was walking her dog.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office reports that the driver may have been unaware they hit the woman and, thus, continued to drive away.
“Sad. Neighbors believe woman was walking her dog. This one has been lying down, alone near crash scene for some time,” Colborn said of the dog seen lying in the road for hours.
Kelly’s family says she and the dog, Paco, were inseparable. Long after Kelly was removed by emergency responders, Paco remained in that same spot for hours.
“Paco is not too happy, and Sammy is not either, because she’s not there with them right now,” Kelly’s mother, Pat Johnson.
Finally, when Kelly’s family came, Paco got up and began to wag his tail. See the touching footage below.
While the authorities are still investigating Kelly’s tragic death. It’s still comforting to know that there is no bond greater than the one between human and man’s best friend.
