CBS 8 is covering Butler County, where a 9-year-old girl has died in an ATV accident.
It happened on a private dirt road off Wildwood Road around 6:30 Saturday night. The Butler County Sherriff's Office tells CBS 8 a daughter and her ex-step father were riding a four-wheeler, when the vehicle flipped off a 12-foot embankment. The 9-year-old child was killed and the ex-step father suffered minor injuries.
Sherriff Kenny Harden says the cause of the accident is uncertain.
"Anytime a child is involved, it touches the whole community. Condolences go out to the family and we're here trying to find out what happened so we can put some closure to it."
The name of the driver and passenger have not been released. This incident is still under investigation.
