The October 1 Route 91 Harvest music festival incident in Las Vegas was one of the biggest man terror attacks in the history of modern U.S. When Dennis Carver and his wife Lorraine Craver went to the music festival they wanted to enjoy the evening and have fun. However, suddenly the joyous environment was converted into a bloodbath after round and round of bullets were unloaded into the crowd by 64-year-old Stephen Paddock from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay. It was a time of horror that proved even one inch of metal can wreck havoc in anyone’s life. Like others, Dennis and his wife prayed for their lives and looked to escape. Fortunately, they survived.
However, just two weeks after the dreadful incident, the couple died in a car crash at less than a mile from their home in Riverside California. According to California Highway Patrol, the Carvers’ Mercedes ramped into metal gate and brick pillars just outside their community on October 16. Fire instantly engulfed the car after the smash, and it took nearly an hour to control the fire.
As per Las Vegas Review-Journal, Madison Carver, the couple’s youngest daughter said that she heard the crash from her bedroom. She immediately ran outside to figure out what had happened when she noticed her family’s vehicle engulfed in flames.
Despite the heartbreak, Madison and her elder sister, Brooke, said they are thankful that family had become closer after the Route 91 Harvest music festival massacre. Brooke, 20-year-old, believes that incident brought her parents closer. She remembers her father calling her just three days after the October 1 incident asking, “Should I get roses or different flowers for your mom?” She also told that the couple was more in love for those two weeks than the last 20 years.
Madison later said that they had found some peace in knowing that they both loved each other so much that they had to go at the same time.
