SHOCK: Davon Jiggetts, 17, was struck and killed after he ran onto a busy Atlanta street trying to escape a pit bull.
Jiggetts had just got off a bus about 1 a.m. Saturday when he was chased by the dog. He ran onto Old National Highway where he was struck by a car.
The dog was also struck and died. Police are investigating how the dog got loose and was able to chase Davon Jiggetts.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that this is the second time this week that a Georgia teen was killed after being struck by a car while fleeing from a dog. On Thursday, Demonta Collins, 13, was killed in a similar accident.
