Arrow Chicago, IL: Woman hit, blind dog killed in hit & run

August 15, 2005 Chicago police are looking for the driver of a car that hit and injured a woman Monday morning and killed the dog she was walking. The whole thing was caught on surveillance tape.

Major accidents investigators are searching for a white car that some witnesses say was carrying four young women who may have been drinking. They are accused of plowing into a woman who was walking dog behind an animal shelter off North Ashland.

The volunteer with the animal shelter Furry Friends Foundation is fortunate to be alive. The dog she was walking was killed.

Shelter surveillance video shows that just after 7:30 Monday morning, 32-year-old shelter volunteer Holly Burd took Brick, a blind rottweiler out for a walk. Within seconds, both were hit by a white car that appeared to swerve to hit them both. After hitting the hood and flipping over the car, Holly looks for Brick, who by then is disoriented. He died moments later.
For the rest of the article, please visit:

Brick's webpage:

You'll notice that they call Brick a Rottweiler in the article but, judging by the photographs of Brick, he was actually a Pit Bull (or some kind of Bully breed, at any rate.)

They're still looking for the person(s) who did this. If you have any information about the white car in the surveillance video, you are asked to call Chicago police major accidents investigations.

I forgot to mention that you can view the video if you visit the link to the article. (And the news report got the Brick's breed correct.)

They definitely got the breed wrong. Brick's a pit mix.

That is so senseless and cruel. I hope they catch the son of a B He could of killed that woman and I'm sure he'll get more serious charges for almost killing her than he will for killing the dog.

I think it said that it was more likely 4 young women who were probably drunk. I hope they get all of them and that they get punished severely for what they did.
