RUSSELL SPRINGS, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Police are investigating the death of one child and the injuring of another after they were run over following a birthday party in southern Kentucky.

Troopers say 4-year-old Lilla Brizendine was pronounced dead Saturday at the Russell County Hospital and 8-year-old Gabrielle York was airlifted to Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville.

Trooper Billy Gregory said in a statement that a Russell Springs woman struck the two children as they played in a yard at about 6:38 p.m. CST. Gregory says the woman was picking up her son after a party and hit the kids while turning her vehicle.

The woman has not been charged and the incident remained under investigation.
