Authorities say a 9-year-old Big Spring, Texas, girl died and an 8-year-old Ardmore boy sustained minor injuries when an all-terrain vehicle on which they were riding overturned. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says Summer Quillen was driving the 4-wheeler on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers property near Lake Texoma when she lost control of the ATV as it was going down a steep hill about 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Troopers say the vehicle overturned and rolled over her.

The patrol says the child sustained head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Jordan Genn was taken by a private vehicle to a hospital for the treatment of minor injuries.

The patrol says helmets were not in use.
