14-year-old killed in ATV crash near Elk Point
EDMONTON – A 14-year-old girl died after being thrown from an all-terrain vehicle Sunday evening near Frog Lake First Nation.
Elk Point RCMP say they were called to Range Road 41 and Township Road 570 around 5:50 p.m.
Officers say the girl was driving alone south on Range Road 41 when the ATV went into the west ditch and hit a fence post.
The 14-year-old was thrown from the vehicle, and she was not wearing a helmet.
The ATV continued a bit further on its own.
When the girl was found by family members, she was unconscious, unresponsive, and lying in the ditch. She had several internal and external injuries.
STARS air ambulance was called out and flew the girl to the University of Alberta Hospital, but she could not be saved.
The file is still open, but RCMP don’t expect any charges will be laid.
The girl’s name is not being released at this time.
