Alert message sent 09/11/2020 11:42:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police


We are appealing for witnesses to a fail to stop incident on the A361 near Southwick. 

At approximately 3pm on Wednesday 4 November, we were called to a report that a dog had been hit by a vehicle or possibly two vehicles on the A361 near to Poplar Tree Lane between Southwick and Rode. 

The vehicle or vehicles failed to stop at the scene.   

Sadly, the lurch type dog was seriously injured and died in one our patrol cars as officers were taking it to a vet in Trowbridge. 

The owner of the dog has also not been identified.

PC Beth Collins said: "We'd d like to hear from anybody who witnessed this collision; were you in this area at the time?  Perhaps you have a dash cam fitted to you vehicle and may have footage of the incident?  If so please come forward.
"We'd also appeal to the driver or drivers who hit the dog to do the right thing and contact us.  
"The owner of the dog is still to be identified and again we urge anyone missing their pet to come forward. 
"If you can help with this incident in anyway, please call 101 quoting crime reference number 54200110588." 

You can also report anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
