A family is hoping the Turlock community can help reunite a lost dog with her owner, who was critically injured in a hit and run collision that claimed the life of his wife.
Elizabeth Mancha, 46, was killed Thursday night and her husband, 53-year-old Dave Mancha was seriously injured when a Ford Mustang drove up on the sidewalk and struck them.
At the time, the couple was out walking their dog Dolly at Summerfaire Park, near Joett Drive and Fulkerth Road.
It’s unknown if Dolly was injured or ran away from the commotion because she was scared. She was not seen at the park by Turlock police officers and has not returned home as of this time.
Dolly is an Australian Shepherd mix. She was wearing a pink harness collar and leash at the time of the collision.
The driver of the Ford Mustang fled the scene of the collision.
The owner of the vehicle that hit the couple, Rene Salas, 49, has been contacted by Turlock police investigators, but has not offered any statements. The investigation is ongoing.
Anyone spotting Dolly can call Turlock Animal Services at 656-3140.
