HAWKINS COUNTY, Tenn. -

A woman is dead and her 4-year-old and 14-year-old passengers are fighting for their lives after a car crash in Hawkins County, Tennessee.

Investigators with the Tennessee Highway Patrol tell us the driver, Michelle Hunt, was trying to go around a curve on Clinch Valley Road when her car went off the right side of the road.

She then over corrected, lost control, hit an embankment, and flipped her car. Everyone inside the car was ejected. Troopers believe safety restraints would have made a difference. Michelle Hunt was 34-years-old.
