This is one of the saddest stories I have read this year. An Illinois family is grieving after Taylor Mae Stinchcomb, 15, tried to save the family dog from being put down and stole their minivan. The resulting accident killed both Taylor and the dog, Romulus.
Taylor took the van and the cancer-stricken Doberman with a friend at midnight on Tuesday. The friend took over driving because Taylor was too upset and crashed the van. The friend survived.
Taylor was going into her sophomore year in high school.
This is an unspeakable tragedy for the Stinchcomb family. Taylor was cut out of the rolled over van but later died of internal organ injuries.
