Dog that got loose at SFO dies after being hit on Hwy 101

SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, Calif.

The animal's owner says a car hit the 2-year-old tan and white Italian greyhound shortly after the dog ran out of the airport and onto Highway 101.

A couple found Larry on the side of the freeway and took him to a Peninsula emergency veterinary clinic where he was euthanized after the vets determined he had critical injuries.

Larry was at SFO, awaiting a flight to British Columbia for adoption.

An Air Canada employee took Larry for a walk when his flight was delayed. That's when the dog managed to slip out of his collar and run away.
