A Plant City mother died in a fatal crash in Polk County Wednesday afternoon.
It happened on U.S. Highway 92 just west of Hibiscus Parkway, near the Polk Parkway.
Investigators say 73-year-old Helen Abram Lamar was headed east on 92 when she crossed the center line into the path of a semi.
The semi swerved to avoid the collision, but Lamar's vehicle hit the back of it.
Lamar died at the scene, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Her two daughters, ages 7 and 8 years old, sustained serious injuries and were taken to Lakeland Regional Medical Center.
The driver of the semi was also hospitalized with minor injuries.
The road was closed for about two hours after the accident.
