BELLEVUE — A 19-year-old city man called 9-1-1 after witnessing a neighbor’s dog get hit by a car.

The man was walking his dogs at 4:30 p.m. Sunday on North Sandusky Street when a small dog on the other side of the street ran toward him and into the path of a northbound station wagon being driven by David James, 54, of Norwalk, according to a police report.

Police said the dog had died from its injuries before they arrived.
