A Colorado man and the dog he was trying to save are both dead after being hit by a car in Utah.

Authorities say 64-year-old Timothy A. Reed of Steamboat Springs, Colorado was killed near Duchesne at about 5:30 a.m. on Friday.

Utah Highway Patrol officials say Reed had pulled his truck and trailer to the side of State Route 191, and his black lab mix ran into the road.

Authorities say it appears Reed was trying to save the dog but was killed along with it when both were hit by a Ford Focus.

Troopers say no charges have been filed against the driver. They say Reed was in Utah on business.
