LEWES, Del. (AP) — Authorities are investigating the crash of a small all-terrain vehicle that left a 16-year-old Delaware girl dead and four other teenage girls injured.
State police said the incident happened about 6:45 p.m. Tuesday in Lewes.
Investigators said one of the girls was driving a John Deere Gator on a private asphalt driveway off Robinsonville Road when she tried to negotiate a left curve at a high rate of speed.
The ATV began skidding, slid off the driveway and began to overturn, striking a tree.
Two of the girls were taken by helicopter to a local hospital with serious injuries.
