LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — A man and a dog were killed after being hit by a semitruck on Interstate 25 on Sunday night, the Colorado State Patrol said.

The crash happened in the northbound lanes near the Harmony Road exit at mile marker 264 about 5:30 p.m.

The Colorado State Patrol said a man and woman were having an argument while driving. The 37-year-old woman from Nevada pulled the 2013 Toyota to the side of the road.

While stopped, a dog in the vehicle jumped out and ran into the interstate and the 39-year-old male passenger from Tennessee pursued it.

A Walmart semitruck, driven by an unidentified 64-year-old Pueblo man, then hit and killed the man.

The dog was also killed, though it is unclear if it was struck by the semitruck. The driver of the semitruck was not injured and stayed at the scene.

The Colorado State Patrol is looking for witnesses to the crash.
