Driver dies in accident; two kids injured

A 27-year-old woman died and two young children suffered minor injuries after the vehicle they were in struck a tree just off a lonely, rural road Sunday. The accident happened about 3 a.m. on Curley Road, about 300 feet south of Leonard Road and near the former Cannon Ranch development area. According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, Tracy Rene Weeks was driving around a curve on Curley Road when the right tires of her 2005 Chevy sport utility vehicle left the paved portion of the road. Weeks overcorrected and the vehicle rotated counterclockwise, sliding sideways and traveling off the east side of the road. The vehicle stopped when it slammed into a tree, the report said. Weeks, of Zephyrhills, died from her injuries, according to the FHP. She wasn't wearing a seat belt. Two toddlers in the vehicle, ages 1 and 2, suffered minor injuries and were taken to Pasco Regional Medical Center in Dade City. No other information about the children was immediately available. Witnesses are asked to call Cpl. Toni Shields at (813) 631-4020.
