Girl loses her life trying to save dog from traffic and will be buried next to her

A 12-year-old Virginia girl will be buried with her dog after she ran onto a highway while chasing it on Saturday.

Jennarae Nicole Goodbar was killed, along with her dog Cash, in an afternoon incident when they were hit by a vehicle that couldn’t stop in time.

‘On the day of the service, [Cash] will be placed in with [Jennarae] and they will be buried together,’ Donna says. WTVR spoke with Jean Stuples. ‘She paid for her with her own money. ‘It was her child.’

In Lexington, a funeral service will be held on Saturday.

The accident happened on Route 60 in Rockbridge County over the weekend.

Around 2.25 p.m., she was struck by a Chevrolet Malibu traveling east on the 3000 block of West Midland Trail. The young girl died on the spot.

Outside the family home, Goodbar had been training the canine and had gone after the female hunting dog.

Senior Trooper R.E. Tackett of the Virginia State Police said Goodbar was chasing the family dog when she entered the roadway and was struck by the vehicle.

The incident was being investigated by the Virginia State Police Crash Reconstruction Team.

In November, a memorial raccoon hunting event will be held in her honor.

‘Coming up on something like this is going to stay in your memory for a long time,’ said Emory Higgins, Vice President of the Kerrs Creek Volunteer Fire Department. ‘With her entire family present, it was quite emotional. ‘Of course, it was right across the street from her house, so her father and brother were there.’

The fire department has been delivering food to the bereaved family and doing everything they can to assist them.

Educators will be providing counseling for the students starting Monday, according to a sixth grade student at Maury River Middle School.

Friends remembered Goodbar through a fundraising page set up for her and her loved ones on the day she died.

Friends’ parents shared images of Goodbar on GoFundMe from happy times they remembered

A GoFundMe post read, ‘She will always be remembered as a sweet, energetic, dog loving, hunting loving little girl.’ ‘A little girl who had a big impact on a lot of people’s lives.’
