A 12-year-old Virginia girl died Saturday after she was struck by a car while chasing after her dog.

Jennarae Goodbar of Rockbridge County was training her dog Cash when he took off running. CBS affiliate WTVR reports the dog ran onto a busy highway and Goodbar followed it into traffic.

A driver was unable to stop in time, killing both Goodbar and the dog.

Now, the family said she will be buried beside her beloved dog.

"She bought her with her own cash. It was her baby," Donna Jean Stuples said. A funeral service is scheduled for Saturday afternoon in Lexington, Virginia.

Local police are still investigating the crash.
