Police release footage of dog struck, killed in Levittown hit-and-run

LEVITTOWN, N.Y. — Police have released security footage of a driver hitting and killing a small dog on Long Island and they say they're searching for the minivan driver who is responsible.

Police on Sunday said a 66-year-old Levittown woman was walking her dog, Peanut, on Sept. 20 when the dog wandered into the roadway and was hit by a blue minivan.

Police say the driver stopped briefly before leaving without offering to help and without identifying themselves.

Police say the dog had been on an extender leash that allowed him to walk into the street.

The Nassau County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
