TMZ reported that the accident occurred Wednesday, July 24, in the Lower East Side neighborhood of Manhattan. The Alaskan Klee Kai reportedly escaped from his leash while out with a dog walker after a pedestrian scared him. The pup then ran into the street, where he was hit. Jonas’ rep said it was “a freak accident.”

The singer, 29, and Turner, 23, reported the incident to police on Friday, July 26, according to TMZ.

The couple adopted Waldo in April 2018. His brother Porky joined the family first.

Nearly one month before the accident, the pair celebrated with a second wedding ceremony in France. “Mr and Mrs Jonas,” he captioned a photo of the duo beaming as they walked down the aisle.

Turner and Jonas tied the knot for the first time in May. They surprised their friends and family with the Las Vegas nuptials, which took place after the Billboard Music Awards.
