A 12-year-old Owensboro girl was killed in an ATV accident on her grandparents' farm Wednesday night.

Lillia Gray was visiting her grandparents, Lloyd and Patricia Gray at the farm in Smithfield when she lost control of the ATV she was operating and went over a hill, rolling the vehicle several times, according to Kentucky State Police Trooper Sergeant Chad Taylor. According to Taylor, Gray was riding with her 15-year-old brother when he got off the ATV to open a cattle gate. He told Gray to drive the ATV through the gate when she lost control and went over the hill.

Gray was flown to Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville, where she died of injuries sustained during the accident.
