Haley Anna Bain, 15, was driving an ATV on C.R. 625W near Reelsville when the four-wheeler left the roadway, went into a ditch, flipped end over end and landed on its top, a news release from Indiana Conservation Officer Max Winchell said.
Bain and her passenger, another 15-year-old girl, were both thrown from the ATV. Bain was transported to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, where she was pronounced dead, via Air Evac Helicopter.
The passenger received minor injuries. She was taken to Putnam County Hospital, where she was treated and released.
Winchell said because the victim is a minor, he cannot release her name. He also said he was unable to release any further information, such as the official cause of death for Bain.
He said accident reports did not indicate whether or not Bain or her passenger were wearing helmets when the accident occurred.
Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating the crash. Assisting agencies were Putnam County Sheriff's Department, and Putnam County EMS.
Friends and family members held a candlelight vigil and memorial service for Bain Sunday night at South Putnam High School.
In tonight's regional game at Linton-Stockton, the softball team will be wearing armbands in her memory. The Lady Eagles will also be wearing purple ribbons in their hair, as it was Bain's favorite color.
Bain's visitation will be from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Wednesday at the First United Methodist Church in Brazil, with funeral service to follow at 3 p.m. Her complete obituary can be read at the top of this page.
