A 13-year-old Cave City girl died in a 4-wheeler wreck in Independence County March 25.

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.
