STONEWALL, Miss. (AP) - Authorities in Mississippi say a girl visiting her grandfather’s farm during spring break has died after being struck by a truck.

Clarke County spokesman Todd Kemp says the girl was on spring break vacation at Millbrook Plantation at the time.

Officials say no charges are expected to be filed.
