O’FALLON, Mo. (AP) - A 78-year-old St. Charles County man and his dog are dead after being struck by a car.

Police say Richard Kurtz died Monday at the border of O’Fallon and Cottleville. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1iYlUta ) reports that Kurtz was outside his home when the dog ran across Highway N.

A passerby caught the animal, and Kurtz walked across the road to retrieve the dog. Kurtz and the dog were struck as they were walking back across the road.

The driver’s name has not been released. An investigation continues.
