HODGENVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - Authorities in one Kentucky county say a child has died in what appears to be a "freak accident."

Gray affiliate WAVE reports 9-year-old Charlene "Charlie" Presleee-Kay Sipes died as a result of injuries sustained in a bicycle accident Tuesday night.

The LaRue County Coroner's Office told WAVE it appears the handlebar brake struck her neck and caused her death.

The third-grader at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School was found by her mother, and the accident happened on her birthday.
