A 13-year-old girl is dead after an ATV accident in Bonavista on Saturday afternoon.
Bonavista RCMP said Sunday afternoon that police, an ambulance and the Bonavista Fire Department were called around 3 p.m., Saturday to a rollover of a single ATV on a local trail.
Police say there were three people in the vehicle at the time. The driver, a female youth, say police, was seriously injured and taken to hospital, where she died a short time later. The two passengers, both also 13 years old, suffered minor injuries.
