Dog missing after owner killed in Brooklyn car crash

BROOKLYN (WABC) -- A woman is searching for her dog after it escaped when her fiancé was killed in a crash in Brooklyn this weekend.

Michael James March, 42, was killed Saturday after a crash on the Belt Parkway and Flatbush Avenue.

Based on their preliminary investigation, police believe March may have been speeding and lost control while negotiating a turn at the approach to the bridge for Gerritsen Inlet.

When first responders arrived, they broke open a car window and the couple's 2-year-old dog Shadow escaped, March's fiancée Ann Mari Fasano said.

March was taken to NYU Langone where he later died.

The dog has still not been found.
