PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

A large dog was hit by a car on Interstate 17 in Phoenix on Monday morning.

The dog was running northbound on the shoulder of the southbound lanes near Seventh Street at approximately 8:30.

An Arizona Dept. of Public Safety trooper on a motorcycle attempted to get the dog off the freeway but it jumped over the wall that divides the southbound and northbound lanes.

That is when it was hit by a car that was traveling northbound.

The dog was knocked down briefly but then ran off the freeway into a residential area.

No additional information is available on the incident.
