Simonson was operating the ATV on a driveway located at S. Blue Water Bay Lane in Audubon when she attempted to turn while going too fast then rolled over, the sheriff's office reported.

She was transported to St. Mary's Innovis Health in Detroit Lakes, then later to a Fargo hospital with serious injuries, Becker County Sheriff Tim Gordon said.

The 14-year-old had no apparent injuries. Neither Simonson nor the passenger was wearing a helmet.

The accident, which is under investigation, was reported at 8:57 p.m. Saturday.
