A dog has two broken legs and a collapsed lung after getting hit by a car. The owners are asking for help to cover surgery costs.

A 2-year-old Siberian Husky was hurt after a car ran her over, and now she needs your help.

The Husky, named Alexis, was hit by a police car this week, Dwight Police Department confirmed. But her owners say they can't afford the surgery, which they expect will cost about $4,000.

The owners got video of the pup being carried on a stretcher into the Pine Bluff Animal Hospital in Morris, Ill., where she's recovering from two broken legs and a collapsed lung.

If you want to help, visit the Facebook page, "Help Save Alexis", for information on how you can donate.
