TAYLORSVILLE, Ill. (AP) — Authorities say a 6-year-old Oklahoma girl died on Sunday when an all-terrain vehicle that she was a passenger on crashed in central Illinois, also injuring her uncle and another child.

Ulicia Garner-Cox was pronounced dead at the scene on Sunday evening by Christian County’s coroner. She was from Elmore City, Oklahoma, according to her obituary.

The Christian County Sheriff’s Office said on Wednesday that Garner-Cox was riding on an ATV with her 44-year-old uncle and a 10-year-old boy when it crashed and threw them off the vehicle in rural Christian County. Garner-Cox died from multiple blunt injuries, her uncle was hospitalized in critical condition, and the boy suffered minor injuries.
