Teen and Dog Die in CrashPublished June 22, 2011
Fifteen-year-old Taylor Stinchcomb, of Gurnee, IL, was in an apparent state of distress after she overheard a conversation which elucidated that the family's Doberman, which had cancer, may have had to be euthanized. Unable to cope with the sad news, Stinchcomb allegedly took the Doberman and her family's minivan and drove off.
Another teen that has not been named was also involved in the accident, and is reported to have been driving the 2003 Dodge minivan when it rolled over and struck several trees and a utility pole. There has been no update on the unnamed girl's status so far.
Here at Petside, our hearts go out to the Stinchcomb family and the families of all parties involved in this horrific accident.
