The Asbury Park Press reports the brown female mixed terrier was then struck by another car, leaving the animal seriously injured.

Officials say the incident happened between noon and 1 p.m. Saturday, in the southbound express lanes of the highway near Exit 116 in Holmdel Township. A good Samaritan saw what happened and stayed with the dog and also called state police.

“The state police were called and the female state trooper who showed up on scene, which I credit for the dog even being alive right now, had the smarts to even race the dog immediately to our headquarters which from there she immediately transported it to Red Bank Animal Hospital,” Chief Law Enforcement Officer for the Monmouth County SPCA Victor “Buddy” Amato told CBS New York.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case; anyone with information about the incident should call 732-312-7153.
