In 2016, 10-year-old Gage Carter was outside with his dog, Stitch, when his family’s worst nightmare came to life.
Stitch had gotten loose and started running toward the street. Gage sprinted after him, only thinking in that moment that he needed to catch up with his best friend. That’s when they were both struck by a car.
Both Gage and Stitch died after a woman driving a truck hit them as they ran into the road. She didn’t have enough time to stop.
Unfortunately, Gage hadn’t looked both ways for any oncoming cars, either.
His family was left devastated as they not only had to deal with the death of their little boy, but their beloved dog as well.
