A Worcester County (Md.) Sheriff’s Office K-9 has died in the line of duty.

The dog, named Ike, was struck by a car at about 10 p.m. Saturday near the intersection of Race Track Road and Route 50, the agency's spokesman, Lt. Edward Schreier, told

His handler, Cpl. Chris Larmore, had pulled over a vehicle, leaving the dog in the parked police car. Ike became "alerted" to something outside the car and jumped out of the window into traffic, Schreier said.

The driver "did everything they could" to avoid the collision and stayed on the scene afterward, the agency said in a statement.

Thoughts with CPL Larmore. R.I.P Ike.

I made a comment in Law Order site and I'll make it here. I feel for the handler for the lost of his partner K9 and what he's going through. However, it's the handler fault for allowing his partner K9 to have the freedom to make decisions on his own. No K9 radio car should be without a screen or bars. Officer safety will not be impacted at all. Safety for the officer and K9 is the most important key here. K9 handler shall always key an eye on their dog when not secured. This was an accident and I hope it remains as such without any dismissal from the unit. Lessons are learned from mistakes. Be safe out their guys/gals and remember, dogs have a mind of their own even if they are well trained and the top dog in compete ion. Sorry for your lost sir. Be safe.
