Dog dies after being thrown from car at Nashville intersection

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) - A small dog thrown from a car at a Nashville intersection early Monday morning has died.

A witness reported the incident around 1 a.m. along Charlotte Ave and Dr. D.B.Todd Blvd.

The Nashville Fire Department went to the scene with a rescue squad.  Drivers who stopped on the side of the road flagged down the ambulance.

The small dog was a Yorkie, weighing only a few pounds. He was treated in the ambulance at the scene, then rushed to an emergency vet along 12th Ave south.

Now Metro Animal Control would like to talk to the caller who witnessed the incident and hopes he or she will call again.

“If this Good Samaritan has any further information please call us at Metro Animal Control so that we can follow up,” said Sue Baker, Metro Animal Control

The dog was not wearing a collar and did not have a microchip to help locate the owner.  

Metro Animal Control says the dog’s injuries were too great for the vet to save him.

At this time, Animal Control is investigating and will turn over any evidence to police. 

The good Samaritan who waived down the fire department  could not provide details about the vehicle nor a license plate number.

Metro Animal Care and Control is asking for anyone who has knowledge of or saw something to call them at 615-862-7928.
