BULLITT COUNTY, Ky. (WHAS11) -- An 89-year old woman is dead after an accident in Bullitt County over the weekend.

The Bullitt County coroner said Hortense Richardson was driving along Coral Ridge Road Saturday when a wheel fell off her car.  Apparently, Richardson over-corrected, went over the median and hit a tree.

Richardson was taken to University Hospital where she died Sunday.

Police said Richardson had a grandchild in the car with her when she crashed and the child did not sustain any injuries.

Richardson was not wearing a seatbelt, police said, but the child was strapped in the vehicle.
