NASHVILLE, Ind. (AP) -- A 20-year-old horse trail guide at southern Indiana's Brown County State Park was killed when authorities say she was hit by a falling tree limb.
State Conservation Officers say Chelsea Lovett of Granger in northern Indiana was on horseback leading a ride Sunday afternoon when a dead tree fell, catching the limb of another tree that struck her. Lovett died at the scene.
Police say a second rider was thrown from a horse and suffered minor injuries.
Lovett was a wildlife management major at Purdue University and Penn High School graduate who had taken the spring semester off to work at the state park's horse stables.
Robert Lovett tells The Herald-Times of Bloomington that his daughter loved animals and was working at an ideal job for her.
