CHEROKEE COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A one-vehicle wreck on State Highway 204 in Cherokee County, near the Nacogdoches County line, has claimed the life of a woman.

According to DPS, Shalee Denise Green, 29, of New Summerfield, was driving a minivan east on Highway 204 when she veered across the westbound lane, overcorrected, then hit a ditch and hit a tree at the same time as the vehicle was turned over.

Her two children, a nine-month-old boy and five-year-old girl, who were in the minivan were taken to a Jacksonville hospital by ambulance.

The wreck occurred about 100 yards north of County Road 1218.
