Every day, neighborhood pets are struck and killed by passing vehicles.
In other cases, the animals that survive the collision face extensive injury and the possibility of being put down to spare them ongoing pain.
For one stray dog in China who was hit by a car, the outcome could not have been more shocking nor miraculous.
The driver who admitted he was driving too fast, hit a stray dog and assumed it had been killed.
So sure of his assumption, he did not even bother to get out of the vehicle to check. However, after a couple hundred miles down the road, the driver heard barking from under the car and pulled over to check.
To his surprise, the dog was lodged under his car. The man immediately drove back to his hometown to have the canine checked out by a vet. In total, the dog was pinned to the vehicle for almost 250 miles.
Miraculously, the animal was not injured. The driver learned his lesson.
He felt so bad for what he had done that adopted the dog and is taking very good care of him now.
He also stopped speeding.
It's a win-win for everyone.
