Salzgitter (dpa / lni) - A 17-year-old motorcyclist was slightly injured in a collision between her machine and a Jack Russel Terrier in Salzgitter.

The dog did not survive the collision on Friday evening, as a police spokesman said on Saturday.

According to the dog owner, the animal was not on a leash when taking a walk and could therefore run onto the road.

The motorcyclist came to a hospital in an ambulance.
