12-Year-Old Dies When ATV Driven By 11-Year-Old Crashes In Ocala

A 12-year-old Florida girl died when an all-terrain vehicle being driven by an 11-year-old went off the road and overturned.

The Florida Highway Patrol says Victoria Rial died shortly after the accident Sunday night in Ocala.

Investigators say the boy was driving Victoria and a 7-year-old boy  northbound on SW 125th Terrace Road just north of the intersection of SW 73rd Street when they went off the road, partially ejecting the girl.

She was taken to Timberridge ER and pronounced dead. The boys were not hurt.

Investigators say charges are pending.
