POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT) - A two year old girl dies after an accident involving an ATV in Randolph County, according to Sheriff Gary Tribble.

Sheriff Tribble says the call came in just after noon, with dispatch being told of a small female child hurt in a four-wheeler accident near Lloyd Williams Road. The caller reported that the child, which was apparently riding on the ATV with another person, had ran through a barbed wire fence.

Sheriff Tribble says the small child was transported to the Five Rivers Medical Center where she then died from her injuries. "The Randolph County Sheriff's Department expresses its deepest condolences to the family," added Tribble.

Tribble tells Region 8 News that his office is not finished working on this incident but he does not expect to file charges.
