The mother of two very young children injured in a wreck in Caldwell County earlier this month has died from her injuries.
Kentucky State Police say 27-year old Angela Harp of Princeton died Wednesday afternoon from injuries sustained in a head-on collision March 8th on Kentucky Highway 293.
The initial report indicated Ms. Harp was southbound when she lost control of her vehicle on the wet roadway and hit a vehicle driven by 55-year old Ross Kaiser of Princeton head-on. Kaiser attempted to avoid the wreck, but was unable to do so.
Kaiser was treated and released from Caldwell County Hospital, as were Ms. Harp’s one and two year old children riding in her vehicle.
The mother was first treated in Caldwell County before being transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Both drivers were wearing seat belts and the children were properly restrained.
