MILLTOWN, Ind. (WHAS11) – A 5-year-old girl was flown to Kosair Children’s Hospital Sunday morning after the off-road motorcycle she was riding flipped on top of her.

Indiana Conservation Officers say it happened at a private residence off Slick Creek Road in Milltown.

5-year-old Sasha Crawford was being watched by her father who was letting her operate a 50 CC dirt bike.

She was wearing a helmet and a chest protector but when the vehicle flipped over, she hurt her leg and back.

Conservation officers say the severity of the injuries was likely reduced because of the protective gear she was wearing.
