Cave City Bar hosting donation drive after mother killed in fatal wreck

CAVE CITY, Ky.- A community is mourning the loss of a 19-year old Park City woman who died in a fatal wreck Monday morning.

Jacie Smith leaves behind a 12-month-old baby girl.

Smith was with her daughter driving along New Bowling Green Road in Glasgow yesterday, when authorities say her car side-swiped another car before striking a tree.

Smith unfortunately passed away. Her daughter, who just turned a year old over the weekend, is in stable condition.

The little girl will now live with her grandmother Michelle Smith, who is both planning her daughter’s funeral and preparing to raise her grandchild.

Michelle works at The Dive in Cave City, where owners are having a donation drive to help her out.

“Anything helps, food. She’s on food not formula. Diapers. I think furniture is alright right now, but clothing [is needed]. Anything that a baby would need to get by during this time. On top of that there’s funeral expenses and medical expenses to take care of as well,” said Leticia Cline, Co-Owner at The Dive.

Supplies can be dropped off at The Dive all week long from 2 pm until close of business. To donate to the GoFundMe account, CLICK HERE.
