The driver, who was wearing a seatbelt, suffered "serious injuries," while Myra was airlifted to Children's Hospital, but the sheriff's office said she died en route.

According to Myra's obituary, she died from injuries sustained in a "farm accident." The sheriff's office has not said what type of vehicle they were riding in. 

A funeral service for Myra is planned for Wednesday at the CMCS outdoor amphitheater in Prinsburg, with a visitation scheduled for Tuesday evening at the same place, her obituary says.
