Chase Stokes pays tribute to the duo of Outer Banks.
Chase Stokes shared a heartfelt message on her Instagram Stories to commemorate the death of her supporter Alexander Jennings.
‘I’m trying to deal with why certain things happen and why the world works that way,’ the star wrote on Wednesday.
He continued, ‘It’s heartbreaking. Your life has just begun. We just talked about how excited you are about your tunes, how far you’ve come with those ole 6-strings, and whether you want to keep making art. He always warms the hearts of others and is not too altruistic.’
The Outer Banks actor said, ‘I want to say more now, but the past days were difficult in one word. We all loved you and you have impacted all of our lives and made us all better people. Thanks AJ. Fly High Angel.’
Stokes was a fan of Jennings’ work and apparently looked forward to the young actor’s future career. Although the actors resembled each other, they also shared a strong bond.
Kimmy Stewart’s casting also mourned the death of the new actor.
The agency said in a Facebook message, “AJ was a beautiful and kind soul, and he was a bright light every day on set.”
‘We will miss this amazing man and his contagious smile very much,’ they added.
Alexander Jennings dies in car accident
Alexander Jennings, known as AJ, was killed in a hit and run accident involving two vehicles in Charleston on Tuesday morning. He was 22 years old.
TMZ reports that AJ was walking across Sol Legare Road on James Island around 2:30 a.m. when a vehicle struck him. Soon after, another car hit him at almost 3 am.
Both vehicles ‘fleeed from the scene’. However, it was reported that the driver of the second vehicle was tracked to a traffic stop in downtown Charleston.
The actor was immediately rushed to the University of South Carolina Medical School, where he died of injuries. The coroner’s office recorded the time of his death at 3:13 a.m.
The case is an ongoing investigation with the first driver still in great condition. No charges have been filed yet.
