One man was injured and his dog was killed in a hit-and-run on U.S. 50 in Zephyr Cove Monday night.

First responders were on the scene in the 600 block of U.S. 50 in Nevada prior to 9 p.m. Monday. A male victim was seen being loaded into an ambulance headed for Barton Memorial Hospital.

Law enforcement did not disclose the victim’s name and his condition is unknown.

A witness told the Tribune that he saw the man’s dog run out into the highway. The man chased after his dog and both were struck by a black truck.

The truck proceeded to drive away from the scene.
