A 12-year-old Schriever girl was killed Saturday in an ATV accident, authorities said.
According to the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office, about 4:30 p.m. deputies and members of the Schriever Fire Department responded to the 200 block of Horseshoe Road in Schriever after an ATV carrying several juveniles overturned in a field.
Three girls, aged 10, 12 and 16, had been riding the vehicle in a cane field when it flipped over and trapped the 12-year-old beneath it, authorities said. The other two females suffered minor injuries during the accident.
After the ATV was lifted off the girl, she was transported to Thibodaux Regional Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead, authorities said.
