SANILAC COUNTY, Mich. --A 13-year-old girl is recovering after being pinned under an ATV.

The incident happened Friday just after 9 a.m. near Harneck and Holverson roads in Sanilac Township.

Police investigation showed that the ATV slid sideways on a gravel road after its wheels made contact with a paved driveway and then flipped over in a ditch.

Residents at the home, and another teen who had been riding another ATV weren’t able to lift it off of her.

The teen called 911, and the residents tried to keep enough of the weight of the ATV off of the girl so she could breathe.

Eventually enough help arrived to get the ATV off of the girl, and she was taken to a local hospital.
