CLIFTON, N.J. — A Clifton family is hoping someone saw something that will help police find the hit-and-run driver who killed their dog.
Skutch, a 5-year-old Siberian Husky, was struck around 11 a.m. Sunday on Hilton Street by a white or silver Yukon XL -- model year 2006-2009, Ivy Yumiguano told Daily Voice.
Neighbors rushed to help after hearing his cries. But Skutch died on the way to the Lyndhurst Police Emergency Squad after the family found the vet's office closed.
Yumiguano said she received a photo of the truck from a neighbor's camera and was looking for more footage.
"It's still like a needle in a haystack without the license plate," she told Daily Voice.
The family raised Skutch since he was a puppy.
He "is remembered by our community as a friendly, beautiful, lovable dog," Yumiguano wrote on Facebook. "He was great with children, other dogs and every person he came across with in general."
Anyone with information that can help find the truck or the driver is asked to call Clifton police: (973) 470-5900.
