14-Year-Old Girl Dies In Rollover Crash Near Brookings
A 14-year-old girl has died following a rollover crash in Brookings.
Trinity Kuehn, of Brookings, died Tuesday at a Sioux Falls hospital, where she was taken after crashing the evening of May 3 in rural Brookings.
Brookings County Assistant Sheriff Scott Sebring said it appeared that Kuehn lost control of the sport utility vehicle she was driving when she tried to avoid several ruts on the road. The SUV entered the ditch and rolled.
Sebring says Kuehn has thrown from and pinned under the vehicle.
Kuehn was an eighth-grade student at George S. Mickelson Middle School. The newspaper reports students at the school had worn blue shirts on May 6 to create “a sea of blue” in support of Kuehn, whose favorite color was blue.
