Police dog in Ohio killed by car after cruiser's door opens accidentally

New Albany's first police dog was struck and killed by a vehicle last night. An automatic K-9 door opens unexpectedly and the police dog jumps into oncoming traffic.

Officer Bungee, was in a K-9 cruiser with his handler and partner, Officer Joel Strahler, traveling on U.S. Route 62 near Yantis Drive at about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. "K-9 vehicles have automatic door openers installed so that doors can be opened remotely in case the dog needs to come to its handler's aid," said Sergeant Greg Jones. "Police dogs are trained to immediately leave the vehicle and get to work once the vehicle door opens."

Jones said the department doesn't know why it opened resulting to Bungee's death but there is an investigation into whether there was a malfunction with the door.

Bungee is a three-year-old Belgian Malinois, he joined the police department as its first K-9 member in August 2010. He was a huge asset in the field with his drug training, and he was a very friendly dog. He was also a fantastic community outreach tool with various school programs.
