KNOX CITY, Mo. -- A Hurdland girl died after a Saturday morning UTV crash on private property south of Knox City.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said that a 2019 Polaris UTV driven by Brandon L. Reed, 31, of Kirksville, was traveling east on private property on Route E, three-tenths of a mile south of Knox City, at 4 a.m. The patrol said the driver lost control while attempting to climb a hill and struck a tree, ejecting the passenger before the UTV came to rest on its side.

The passenger, Maryjane R. Shey, 11, of Hurdland, was taken by Knox County Ambulance to Northeast Regional Hospital.
