ATV accident in South Dakota kills 10-month-old girl

Posted: Updated:

ONAKA, S.D. (AP) - A 10-month-old girl died in an all-terrain vehicle accident in northeastern South Dakota over the weekend.

The Highway Patrol says Amaya Larson was one of three children on the ATV being driven by 53-year-old Gary Rausch, of Onaka. Authorities say Rausch was turning from a private driveway onto state Highway 20 about 5 p.m. Saturday when he lost control and the ATV rolled onto its side, pinning him and the girl.

She died at a hospital in Faulkton. Rausch also was taken there with what the patrol says were serious but not life-threatening injuries.

The other two children on the ATV were not hurt.
