HILLSBORO, Mo. (AP) -- The 5-year-old girl killed in an eastern Missouri all-terrain vehicle accident is identified as Griffin Calvert of Hillsboro.

Meanwhile, the 15-year-old girl who was driving the ATV remains hospitalized in serious condition following the accident that occurred Thursday in Jefferson County. Her name has not been released and her relationship with Griffin is not specified.

Sheriff Glenn Boyer says the 15-year-old was driving the ATV with Griffin on board when it struck a tree and the younger child was thrown from the vehicle.

Griffin was scheduled to begin kindergarten. Counselors will be at the school when it opens Monday.
