An eight-year-old girl from Grand Traverse County has been killed in a sledding accident in Kalkaska County.
Deputies say Carly Belknap of Fife Lake was with a group of children sledding down a hill in Springfield Township Park on Saturday. The sheriff says her sled spun around, went over a barrier and crashed into a small clump of trees.
Her safety helmet wasn't enough to protect her. She died from head injuries at a local hospital.
