LEHIGH ACRES, Florida (AP) - Two children have serious injuries after crashing their all-terrain vehicle in southwest Florida.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, 9-year-old Angela Wright was driving the ATV when it crashed Sunday afternoon in Lehigh Acres.

Troopers say the ATV flipped over as it approached a telephone pole in a grassy area.

According to a crash report, both the girl and her 16-year-old passenger Kyle Pilgrim were thrown off the ATV in the crash. Troopers say the teenager struck the telephone pole after being ejected, and the ATV struck the 9-year-old after she was thrown off.

Both children were taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
