A Sanford woman was killed in an ATV crash in Volusia County Friday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. 18-year old Kimberly D. Phillips was transported to Florida Hospital Fish Memorial in Orange City by EVAC ambulance but died from her injuries, according to FHP spokesperson Trooper Wanda Diaz. Phillips had been driving a 2012 Polaris All-Terrain vehicle south on Fawn Trail in Osteen at around 4:45 Friday afternoon. Troopers say she approached Doe Road, “…at a high rate of speed…” and lost control of the ATV as she turned east onto Doe Road. The ATV fishtailed, and after traveling along the south edge of Doe Road, the FHP says Phillips “…drove the [ATV] into the south ditch where it overturned and pinned her.”
Volusia County Fire Services units responded to the scene, and the accident was investigated by the Florida Highway Patrol.
