ATV crash kills young girl


A six year old girl from the area has died as a result of an ATV crash in Poweshiek County.

Officials say Kara Meyer was critically  injured in the crash that occurred Monday morning near Montezuma.

The Iowa State Patrol says the ATV pinned the girl.  Her father was unable to move the machine off of her.  She was taken to an area hospital and later transferred to the University of Iowa Hospitals in Iowa City.

The patrol says the father was driving the ATV on a gravel road looking for some cattle when the ATV got too close to a ditch and rolled over.
