Gary Dewayne Simpson told Independence County Deputy Colby Markum that his daughter, Elizabeth A. Simpson, had left the house on East Center Street on a 4-wheeler to check on a calf in a field near their home. When she didn't return, he went to look for her and found the 4-wheeler laying upside down on top of her in the field, Markum said.
Simpson removed the 4-wheeler off of his daughter and found she wasn't breathing, Markum said. He called his wife and had her call 9-1-1.
Spring River Paramedic Ambulance Service and Cave City police responded to the call. Elizabeth Simpson was pronounced dead at the scene.
