Posted: Updated:

UNION TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WENY) -- One person has died and two more are injured after an early evening ATV accident.

It happened on Friday around 7:00 p.m. in Union Township.

Police tell us an 11-year-old was driving the 4-wheeler when it flipped, landing on its side, pinning all three people underneath.

We're told the child tried to make left-hand turn, at too high a rate of speed.

An 8-year-old passenger was taken to Guthrie Troy Community Hospital where she was pronounced dead. 

The 11-year-old driver was taken to Williamsport Regional Medical Center and the 18-year-old passenger was taken to Geisinger Medical Center by helicopter.

No word on either of their conditions today.
