Nassau County police are looking for the driver who struck and killed a Yorkie named Peanut in Levittown last month.

Authorities said a 66-year-old woman was walking Peanut with an extender leash on Center Lane on Sept. 20, when the dog wandered into the roadway and was fatally struck.

The driver of the blue Chrysler Pacifica appeared to slow down momentarily after the dog was hit but left the scene without stopping.

Nassau police detectives ask anyone with information regarding the incident to contact the Second Squad at 516-573-6253.

The Nassau County SPCA is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the driver.
