Woman dies, two children hurt in Bracken wreck

A woman died and two children were injured in a single-vehicle crash Tuesday morning in Bracken County.

State police said Jamie Shields, 34, of Augusta was driving north on Ky. 8 when her vehicle went off the right side of the road and she overcorrected near Wrangling Run Road.

The Chrysler PT Cruiser she was driving crossed the southbound lane and hit an earth embankment at 10:05 a.m.

Shields, who was not wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Neither of the two children in the car was restrained properly, state police said. They were taken to University of Cincinnati Hospital and Cincinnati Children's Hospital. The children's identities were not released.
