PLANT CITY (CBSMiami/AP) — A tragic accident for a Florida family out for some weekend fun.

Authorities say a 9-year-old Florida girl was killed when an ATV driven by an 11-year-old girl crashed.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that the girls were in a Can-Am Commander ATV on Saturday when it overturned in Plant City.

The sheriff’s office described the vehicle as similar to a dune buggy.

Officials say the 9-year-old was ejected when the driver attempted to turn the ATV around. The 11-year-old suffered minor injuries.

Neither girl was identified by the sheriff’s office.
