"I heard screaming, so I looked out my window and I saw that dog jump into the back of the truck here, and it grabbed onto the woman's leg," Agecoutay said. "She started screaming and she fell backwards and the dog fell out with her, and it started just like ripping at her leg.

"She was like really freaked out. She was like screaming. She was crying. She looked like she was in a lot of pain and her leg looked really bad."
