Puppy of man killed in hit-and-run accident is found safe
VERNON (AP) — A missing puppy whose owner was killed by a hit-and-run driver while they were out walking last week has been returned.
Police in Vernon posted on their Facebook page that the dog, named Ollie, was found and returned on Saturday morning.
Ollie and his owner, Andrew Aggarwala, were walking last Tuesday afternoon in their neighborhood just south of Interstate 84 when a car struck Aggarwala and fled. The 44-year-old, who was well-known in the local soccer community, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Ollie was found not far from the site of the accident. Police and residents had joined in the search for the dog.
Police said on Friday that they had identified a suspect but hadn't yet filed criminal charges. They had been seeking any home surveillance video from the time of the accident.
