A Ticket For Hitting A Dog?

Someone I met the other day was late for her job because she hit a dog on the way in. She was going over a bridge and suddenly there was a dog, which she hit. Then it was stuck to the bottom of her car.

She called for the proper authorities, who, she said, gave her a ticket for hitting it. That sounds weird to me. I guess she could not have driven off because the dog was stuck to the bottom of the car. But it sounds weird that if you report something like that that happens you get a ticket.

Even if you didn't report it, it seems like something that is just an accident. Like hitting a deer or a squirrel. You're not going out of your way to run over what's in the road.

That was in Kansas.
