2 Killed in ATV Accidents in North Florida

BRONSON, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say two people have died in north Florida after separate accidents involving all-terrain vehicles.

Florida Highway Patrol tells The Gainesville Sun that a 12-year-old Trenton girl died after the ATV she was driving late Saturday flipped over and landed on her.

FHP says the girl had a 5-year-old passenger when she lost control of the ATV on a limerock road. The younger child was hospitalized with minor injuries.

An FHP report says neither child was wearing a helmet or seat belt.

FHP also reported that early Sunday a 22-year-old Bronson man died after his ATV struck an embankment and overturned, tossing him to the ground.
