The mother of two children who were killed in a car crash in Colorado over the weekend has been charged in the wreck.

Jamie Dowling, 22, is charged with careless driving causing death and no proof of insurance.

Her children, 5-year-old Landryn Scott and 2-year-old Rayleigh Kay, were killed in the crash east of Gunnison, Colo., on Saturday morning.

The Colorado State Patrol said at the time of the crash that Dowling's vehicle was struck by another vehicle after she spun out of control on snow-packed U.S. 50.

Both children were wearing seat belts.

Dowling had recently moved to Colorado for a new job, her family said.

Dowling, who Colorado troopers said was not wearing a seat belt, sustained serious injuries in the crash.
