A woman and a dog who were out for a walk on Friday afternoon were fatally struck by a vehicle in the suburb of Rolling Meadows, authorities said.

The incident was reported around 4:45 p.m. in the 2100 block of Kirchoff Road. Authorities say a 2012 Toyota Prius heading west on Kirchoff hit a woman who was walking a dog. The woman was taken to North West Community Hospital where she was pronounced dead, authorities said.

A Good Samaritan took the dog to a local veterinary hospital where he died from his injuries. The driver of the Prius, a 45-year-old woman from Arlington Heights, and a child passenger were not injured, police said.

The accident is still under investigation by the Rolling Meadows Police Department and the Suburban Major Crime Assistance Severe Traffic Accident Reconstruction Team.
