WORCESTER COUNTY, Md. — A K-9 was fatally struck by a passing vehicle during a traffic stop in Maryland.

According to ODMP, the K-9’s handler was speaking to a driver during a traffic stop when K-9 Ike was alerted to something outside of the officer’s vehicle and jumped out of a window.

He was then hit by a passing car.

Ike served with the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office for three years, according to the report. 

Delmarva Now reports the driver “did everything they could” to avoid the police dog. 

Ike received a police escort “with full honors” to a funeral home.
