A California couple, Dennis and Lorraine Carver, who survived the Las Vegas shooting, died in a fiery car crash on October 16, minutes from their Riverside County home, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
The couple attended the three-day Harvest 91 music festival one month ago when shots rang out on the third day while country music star Jason Aldean was on stage, Dennis thought it was firecrackers.
But as soon as he realized he was hearing gunfire, Dennis Carver jumped on top of his wife to cover her body. After several lulls in the shooting, the couple ran for their lives.
On the night of Oct. 16, the couple’s younger daughter, 16-year-old Madison Carver, heard a loud bang outside her window.
When she ran down the street and rounded the corner, a familiar vehicle engulfed in flames came into view. Dennis, 52, and Lorraine, 53, had died together less than half a mile from their home.
According to the Riverside County Fire Department, their vehicle crashed into a metal gate outside their community at 10:50 p.m. on the 20000 block of Avenida De Arboles. It took firefighters nearly an hour to completely put out the fire, the department said in a statement.
