It happened just after 6 on Sunday evening on Laurel Lane in the Gordon community.

Police say the girl was riding an ATV when she lost control and hit a tree.

"It's just hard to comprehend how or why something like this may happen, our heart goes out to the family, the parents and the extended family of this child," said Jody Sims, a trooper with Kentucky State Police Post 13.

Police say there were no other vehicles involved. The girl was the only person on the ATV.

We do not know the girl's name at this time.
