On Saturday night, a woman died while trying to capture her dog who ran onto I-95 in Stafford County, Virginia, after an accident. The pug, named Stella, escaped from 28-year-old Kate Mason’s Toyota after Mason hit a guardrail, reported WTVR News. In the midst of trying to capture Stella, a car struck and killed Mason. Her beloved dog was also killed after being hit by a car.
Family remembers Mason as a selfless person.
Friends and family of Kate Mason remember a woman who was selfless, and driven to help others. Mason was a graduate of the Virginia Commonwealth University. She also served in the National Guard as a combat medic. Her family has asked that any donations in Mason’s memory be made to the African Wildlife Organization.
Dog lovers are known to risk their own safety when it comes to saving their beloved pets – for those who consider their pets to be family, throwing caution to the wind is not surprising.
