    A state police dog has died after being hit by a car on Wednesday night, according to state police.

    An off-duty state police K9 handler was exercising the dog, Gunnar, when a driver accidentally hit the animal, according to state police.

    The K9 team had worked together for around two years.

    “Gunnar was a valuable asset to Troop K as well as the entire department. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Trooper and her family,” a statement from state police says.
