LUND, Sweden, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Police in Sweden said they are investigating allegations an officer hit and killed a small dog with his police cruiser and did not stop.

A Lund woman said she was out walking her Chihuahua without a leash Thursday when the dog was struck and killed by the cruiser, The Local.se reported Friday.

A motorist who was traveling in the opposite direction witnessed the incident and attempted to turn around and inform the officer, but was unable to catch up to the cruiser.

"This is being written up as a traffic accident that a dog has been run over. We're not entirely certain of the circumstances surrounding it, but what we can state is that there is a traffic accident report that a police car, according to the information, has run over a dog," Stephan Soderholm of the Lund police said.

Soderholm said the incident is being investigated internally.
