under the influence of alcohol hence he fled the scene.

“In such unfortunate and heartbreaking accidents, one would expect that the culprit immediately hand themselves before the police to help with the investigations as fleeing the scene only leaves a lot of question marks,” he said.

He said these sorts of accidents are common around the households. He said they often happen to household pets and are not usually reported. He advised drivers to be vigilant when driving around the homestead.
