Manitoba RCMP are mourning the life of a 12-year-old girl following a utility terrain vehicle (UTV) accident at the start of May.

Neepawa RCMP says that on May 1, at 7:45 p.m., they received a report of a UTV rollover.

Upon arrival at the scene, officers saw three girls ejected from the UTV needing medical attention.

The investigation has determined that the youths were travelling on Road 76 West, approximately 400 metres south of the Road 83 North intersection, when the UTV slid into the ditch, rolling several times.

The driver and one passenger, both 14 years old, were transported to hospital with serious injuries. The second passenger, a 12-year-old girl, was transported to hospital with life-threatening injuries and passed away on May 5.

The RCMP notes that none of the riders were not wearing seatbelts or helmets.

The investigation is continuing with the help of an RCMP Forensic Collision Reconstructionist.
