VIDEO: Ohio K-9 Dies After Being Hit by Truck

A Franklin County (OH) Sheriff's Department dog was killed Monday morning when she suddenly darted into the street and was struck by a truck, reports WCMH-TV.

Udet, a 3-year-old German Shepherd, was trained in narcotics detection and worked with Deputy Mike Durbin.

Chief Deputy Jim Gilbert told NBC4 that Durbin and Udet were preparing to leave for work in the morning when Udet spotted another dog across the street and took off. Gilbert says Durbin tried to recall Udet but she did not respond and was struck by a dump truck.

Gilbert says Udet was Durbin's second K-9 partner. "It's a very tough time, very emotional time right now," Gilbert said. "He's energetic. He loves the job that he does with the dog and that bond that's forged. This is going to be very tough for him."

Udet will be buried at the Franklin County Canine Memorial on Jackson Pike.

God bless Udet, a courageous and fearless K-9 officer. She was so young to be taken. This is so sad. My heart hurts every time a " best friend " dies. I love animals and particularly dogs. I have three. My heart goes out to deputy Mike Durbin who, I'm sure is heart broken. God bless deputy Durbin and his family. Thank you Udet for your service and thank you deputy Durbin for your service.
