A four-year-old girl died Wednesday when the ATV she was riding on flipped over backwards near Marchand, Manitoba.
The 32-year-old father of the child had his daughter seated in front of him while they were travelling up a hill. The vehicle flipped onto both riders and continued to roll down the hill.
The accident happened off Twin River Road and Provincial Road 210 at around 3:30 p.m.
The four-year-old was wearing a helmet at the time and died in hospital. The father, who is from Marchand, wasn’t injured.
Alcohol is not a factor in the collision and RCMP continue to investigate.
