Coroner identifies 12-year-old girl killed in ATV wreck

HENDERSONVILLE, S.C. (WCSC/AP) - A 12-year-old girl has died after a wreck on an all-terrain vehicle in Colleton County.

Colleton County Fire and Rescue crews were called to a home near Hendersonville shortly after 1:30 p.m. Monday.

Colleton County Fire and Rescue Director Barry McRoy says witnesses said some children at a birthday party were driving two all-terrain vehicles in the woods behind the house when 1 of the vehicles rolled over.

The girl, Calista Smith, was treated by paramedics and was flown to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston where she died.  Colleton County Coroner Richard Harvey said she died from multiple traumatic injuries.

A second child was taken to Colleton Medical Center and was in stable condition with a leg injury.
