CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A 6-year-old Harpers Ferry, W.Va., girl died Monday afternoon as a result of injuries she suffered in a one-car accident Saturday on Mission Road on Blue Ridge Mountain, said Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputy Patricia Smith.
Lillian Jay, of 32950 River Drive, died at Inova Fairfax Hospital, where she was being treated, Smith said.
Jay's mother, Emily Fay O'Brien, 30, of the same address, was driving a 2003 Honda Element north on Mission Road near a church at about 11:40 a.m. Saturday, Smith said.
O'Brien told authorities that the next thing she knew, she struck a tree, Smith said.
An investigation was continuing, Smith said.
O'Brien and her son, Logan Jay, 9, were taken to Jefferson Memorial Hospital and later released, Smith said.
Lillian Jay started kindergarten at Blue Ridge Elementary School last August, said Principal Susan Zigler.
Zigler said counselors were available Tuesday for Blue Ridge Elementary School students to help them deal with the loss.
