Hit & Run on McNorton

Around 5:00pm today (3/ 8/ 19) I was driving down McNorton on my way to a work meeting. I saw a large dog run onto the road from one of the side streets. The car in front of me hit it with such force the poor thing flew into the air & crashed back onto the road. I slammed on the brakes, already feeling in shock. The driver kept driving. I wasn't sure what to do. Stay or chase down the driver. I stayed, blocking traffic & got out. People honked. I didn't care.The dog limped back over to my side of the street. He/ she was crying/ howling. He/ she made it to the grass & layed down. I honestly didn't know what to do. 2 young girls came running & fell to the grass holding the dog & crying. A guy had his cell phone out filming the whole thing. I honestly didn't know what to do. I heard someone say they were going to call 911. Would they come for a dog? I don't know. Finally a blonde lady who had been driving from the other direction took charge & asked the girls if they wanted her to bring the dog to the vet. I moved my car & went on to my meeting, crying all the way. I've never witnessed anything more heartbreaking. For the person driving, I know it was an accident, but how could you keep driving like nothing had even happened. I can't stop thinking about it. Does anyone know what happened to the dog? Did the lady bring him to the vet? Did he make it?
