(KNX 1070) -- Authorities are trying to track down a group of young women who abandoned a dog in traffic on the 101 Freeway last Friday evening. 

Investigators have some solid information...but say they need the public's help, too.

Captain Cesear Perera of the Society Prevention Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (SPCALA), told KNX that motorists couldn’t believe what was happening when a White Chrysler Sebring convertible came to a stop between Melrose and Santa Monica Blvd and threw the brown terrier-mix out of the car. 

California Highway Patrol was called, but no trace of the dog was found. Perera says someone did get a picture of the car.

The four young women who were seen in this car are facing potential charges of intentional animal cruelty which could get them jail time or a $20,000 fine.
