A Loudonville man -- just trying to save his dog -- is hit and killed in Crawford County.

The accident happened just after 8:15 p.m. Sunday on U.S. 30, near the Lincoln Highway exit.
  

The sheriff's office says Eugene Bergner, 77, was driving his 2010 Ford Focus eastbound on U.S. 30. Bergner and his long-time companion, Barbara Hamilton, 80, also of Loudonville, pulled their car over in the eastbound lane near the County road 330 exchange to let their dog out. The dog got loose and ran onto the highway.
  

When Bergner ran out to retrieve it, both he and the dog were struck and killed by a 2002 Windstar minivan driven by Douglas Obanion, 43, of Michigan.

The Sheriff's Office says Obanion is in the process of moving to Mansfield.
  

The Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Ohio Department of Transportation were at the scene of the accident.

Members of the Jefferson and Whetstone Township volunteer fire departments and Lifestar Ambulance Service were also on the scene.

The crash remains under investigation.
