In Singapore, once in a while, a stray dog or cat will be killed in an accident. But that doesn't means that there are a lot of stray dogs and cats in Singapore.

You could use the word into instead of across:
The dog dashed into the road and was run over by a car.

Using the word across tends to suggest that the dog crossed the road successfully.

Yes, you got the point. That was what my friend told me. And I just wanted to confirm what he said is correct. If the dog dashed across the road, it means that he crossed the road without being injured.
