Correction: An earlier version of this story said the 9-year-old boy was the driver of the ATV. This was incorrect, the 14-year-old girl was the driver. We apologize for the error.

A teenage girl is in a critical condition in a Minnesota hospital after she was trapped beneath an ATV.

Meeker County Sheriff's Office said the incident happened at 9:20 p.m. Friday on the 54000 block of County State Aid Highway 23 in Acton Township.

The 14-year-old girl, Sabrina Miller, driving the ATV with her 9-year-old male cousin, from Cosmos, Minnesota, a passenger.

Miller is thought to have turned too sharply, causing the ATV to flip over, pinning them both underneath.

The boy called police, telling them his cousin, from Glendale, Arizona, was not breathing.
