SHARON, Pa. (WKBN) – Thursday night, a dog died after being hit by a car in Sharon.

It happened around 11:30 p.m. on Budd Street.

Paul Tobin, Mercer County’s humane officer, said a man living nearby heard a noise, went out to his front porch and found the dog yelping in the yard of an abandoned house.

The young brindle pit bull died before the Humane Society of Mercer County arrived.

The owner of the dog said they were looking for it last night after it got out of its collar.

If anyone has information on who the hit and run driver is, call the Humane Society at 724-981-5445 and press 1.

The Humane Society said the dog was thrown out of a window in a Facebook post Friday morning, but the dog’s owner called to set the record straight.
