CUMBERLAND, Wis. (AP) - One child died and three others were hurt, including one critically, when their off-road vehicle overturned in Barron County. Sheriff’s deputies responded to the crash east of Cumberland Thursday afternoon.

Four children, ages were riding in a utility task vehicle when the driver lost control, causing it to overturn and throwing all four from the UTV.

Officials say a 13-year-old Cumberland girl died at the scene.
