CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say an 8-year-old girl has died after an all-terrain vehicle accident in Searcy County.
The Log Cabin Democrat reports that Madelyn Grace Johnston was killed in the wreck Saturday. Searcy County Chief Deputy Dewayne Pierce says the accident happened about a mile off Arkansas 65 in Marshall.
Few details have been released, but Pierce says it appears to be "an unfortunate, tragic accident." The ATV's driver and another passenger suffered minor injuries in the wreck.
Madelyn was a second-grade student at Woodrow Cummins Elementary School in Conway.
