Osage County Sheriff Michael Dixon said Kately Eoff, of Franklin, Ky., was flown from the scene of the 3:13 p.m. March 29 incident to Children’s Hospital in St. Louis. Eoff was driving a “mule-style” ATV with a roll-bar, but no cab, when she reportedly struck a tree in an attempt to drive around it in a field off of Watercress Lane in the Osage County community of Cooper Hill. Dixon said the crash was a “low speed” variety. “She cut the wheel too sharp passing the tree,” said Dixon. “The front passenger tire hits the tree and runs up the tree. The driver was ejected and the ATV rolled over onto her body.” The girl received moderate to serious injuries to her upper body.
