The sheriff's office says 13-year-old Emma Kringle has died from her injuries.
The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office says Emma and her 9-year-old cousin were riding ATV's Saturday afternoon, when her hair got caught in the engine. It happened at her grandparent's house near Northwest 140th Street.
Sheriff Terry Wagner says Emma was wearing a helmet while riding a home–built 3–wheel ATV that was sturdy and safe.
"It was a substantial 3-wheel ATV, had been ridden for many years at the grandparents' acreage and this was just a terrible tragic accident that occurred," Sheriff Wagner said.
She was airlifted to Bryan West. A hospital spokesman on behalf of the Kringle family said she passed away from head injuries sustained during the accident. Emma was a student at Waverly Middle School.
