(PAOLI) - A 16-year-old Paoli girl was killed Monday night after the ATV she was driving flipped and pinned her underneath.

Bailey Carty, a junior at Paoli High School, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Local youth ministers and extra counselors meet with students at the high school today to deliver the news and help students cope.

Three years ago Carty lost her mother Stephanie Babcock when she was killed in an accident.

Babcock was the daughter of Steve and Diane Babcock. She left behind a little sister Jaylin, who is a sixth-grader and her grandparents, who she was living with.

According to an Indiana Conservation report, the accident happened in the 2700 block of East County Road 100 North.

Carty was driving the ATV on her grandmother's property in a remote wooded section of a neighboring property and had been gone for about an hour when her grandmother went looking for her.

Shortly before 5 p.m., her grandmother found Carty unconscious, underneath the overturned ATV. She began CPR until medical help arrived, but Carty could not be revived.

An autopsy is scheduled for today in Bedford.

The incident remains under investigation by Indiana Conservation Officers.

Carty was not wearing a helmet or any safety equipment.

Indiana Conservation Officers strongly encourage riders to always wear a helmet and necessary safety equipment when operating an ATV.

Assisting at the scene were officers from the Orange County Sheriff's Department, first responders with Paoli Fire Department, an IU Health Ambulance crew and the Orange County Coroner's Office.
