ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) - An eastern Ohio sheriff says an 11-year-old girl died after suffering a head injury in an accident involving an all-terrain vehicle.
Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz says the accident happened Monday near a home in Perry Township, northwest of Zanesville. The sheriff didn't immediately release the girl's name, hometown or any information about how the accident occurred.
The girl initially was taken to a hospital with severe head trauma.
No helmet was found at the scene, and deputies there didn't believe the girl was wearing a helmet but couldn't say for sure.
