A loyal dog refused to leave his owner's side on Friday morning after she was hit by a truck and killed in Florida.
Kelly Black, 42, was walking her dog Paco around 6 a.m. ET in Jacksonville when she was hit by a truck and dragged underneath the vehicle.
"It appears that she was possibly struck by a tractor trailer and it's unknown if the driver knew that he struck the victim," a police spokesman told reporters Friday.
As Tucson News Now reported, Paco waited by his owner's side as she died, then continued to wait as police arrived to cover up the body.
Paco was filmed by reporters lying on the street, his head slumped on the road, as officers taped off the area of the accident.
After the body was taken away, the dog stayed at the scene, but he was eventually reunited with Black's family.
Police believe the dog may be the only witness to the crash, but Black's mother, Pat Johnson, told Tucson News Now she hoped someone would come forward.
Johnson said Black had two dogs. “They're going to be real sad over their momma's not home with them no more," she said. "Momma's not coming back, I guess, no more."
