A devoted dog owner and his pet pooch were buried together after they both died in a horror car crash.
Oscar Hernandez and his faithful friend Bruno were travelling down Mexican Federal Highway 101 in the state of Tamaulipas on Monday, 25th July, when their car was hit by a double-trailer truck.
The car was completely crushed in the collision, causing the instant deaths of the young man and his pet dog.
Oscar’s relatives said he had been driving from his home in Ciudad Victoria to Matamoros to holiday with them.
As no one was able to take care of Bruno, he had brought the dog along with him.
Oscar’s sister Noemi took to social media to write: “I regret to inform you that this morning we received the news that my brother Oscar Hernandez is no longer with us.
“I ask you to pray for my family in these moments of so much pain.”
Days later, she revealed that Oscar and Bruno would have a joint funeral and be buried together.
She invited friends and family along to remember a friendship that endured until the end.
She wrote on 27th July: “Family, colleagues, friends. We are currently accompanying my brother Oscar Hernandez to Jardines del Recuerdo where he will rest together with Bruno (his pet).
“We currently plan to arrive at 11am to say our last goodbye!”
Reports say the lorry driver sped away from the scene of the accident without providing assistance or waiting for the police.
