The man, who owns a dog kennel, was returning a leashed dog to its owner when the dog ran into the road and the kennel owner chased after it, Salt Lake City Police Lt. Russ Amott said. A southbound truck on Beck Street then hit the man and the dog at 1657 North, Amott said.

He said the driver stopped and got out to check on the man for a "moment" and then "fled the scene."

Amott said police Friday night had very limited information about the crash and are looking for the driver. He was in a tan Ford F-150, Amott said, and a 10-year-old boy was in the front passenger seat.

Additional information about the victim was not immediately available.
