Mother Dies, Two Children Survive Car Crash

By  | 

Two young children are okay but their mother won't be coming home because she died at a local hospital early Saturday morning after a car accident on Highway 231.

Florida Highway Patrol Troopers say 33-year-old Lena Shawn Kimbrell of Fountain was not wearing her seat belt. Her two-year-old son and eight-year-old daughter were also in the car, but were not injured.

The accident happened at 1:00 Saturday morning one mile south of Fountain.

Investigators say Kimbrell was driving in the southbound lane when the car drifted off the road, overturned twice and hit a fence.
