ROCKCASTLE COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ)- A Rockcastle County car crash killed an 11-year-old girl Sunday.

The coroner says it happened on I-75 north near mile marker 60.

He says police think the girl’s mother fell asleep around 6:30 a.m. as she was driving.

She went off the right hand side of the road and hit a rock wall.

That killed the 11-year-old girl. She hasn’t been publicly identified yet because some of her family still doesn’t know. The coroner says he expects to release her name Monday.

Her two brothers were airlifted to UK Hospital. There has not been an update on their condition. Their mother wasn’t hurt in the wreck.

According to the coroner, there have been about three crashes on this part of I-75 in the last week.
