In an unfortunate update to a news story we reported earlier, the 10 year old who was struck by a vehicle on August, 22nd, Haze Lynn Ayen, died from her injuries. The accident happened along Adams Creek Road in Cherokee around 3:30 pm. She was taken to Mission Hospital where she was listed in critical condition and put on life support. After being advised by doctors on her prognosis and inevitable fate, her family has decided to donate her organs. They already know that lives have been save by her sacrifice and they hope that many more will be. Family and friends are posting condolences on a Facebook page that has been made in Hazes memory, and say she was beautiful and full of love, and gone too quickly. One quote reads; “She is so beautiful. She is in God’s hands now, and with other loved ones. My prayers are with the family…” Another says “Such a beautiful little girl. God gained an angel today, I pray for healing for the family. I did not know Haze but my heart is broken for those that love her. I pray God will comfort you as only he can.” Investigators are still putting together exactly what happened when a vehicle struck the girl. The Cherokee Indian Police and the North Carolina Highway Patrol are working together to reconstruct the accident, and there is currently no word on whether the driver of the vehicle will face any charges.
