A dog owner's worst fear is seeing your pet dash onto a busy street.

Such an incident happened on Feb. 10 at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 at around 9pm. A video uploaded to the SG Road Vigilante Facebook page showed a small white dog frantically dodging between cars.

The dog also appeared to get hit by a black and white Honda Fit, and tumbled across the road.

In the video, a small white dog could be seen dashing from the right side of a three-lane road to the middle lane.

It stood right in the way of an oncoming white Honda Fit.

It is unknown if the driver had noticed the small white dog.

The Honda Fit then appeared to hit the dog, and it tumbled across the rightmost lane of the road.

The dog frantically got up and sprinted back onto the road, looking panicked and confused.

It ran in front of the camcar, who braked to avoid hitting the animal.

The dog then dashed to the other side of the road, where a car had stopped to assist with retrieving the dog.

A couple alighted from the car and approached the dog to prevent it from running into danger again.

Meanwhile, a woman, clad in an orange shirt and holding what appeared to be a leash, ran onto the road and after the dog.

What to do if you hit an animal while driving

According to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), if one accidentally hits an animal while driving, one should carefully stop their vehicle and remain at the scene.

One should then call the appropriate authorities. If it is a domestic animal and it is still alive, one should call SPCA. If it is a wild animal, one should call the Animal Concerns Research and Education Society (ACRES). If the animal is dead, one should call the National Environment Agency (NEA) to come and clean up the carcass.

One should also be cautious when approaching the animal, as it will most likely be in shock and might bite or scratch in fear.

"If you are able to, you can take the animal to a veterinary clinic for treatment," said SPCA.

If the pet is wearing a collar or tag that can help identify it's owner, one should also call to alert the owner.
