Relatives mourn the loss of a 14-year-old Georgia girl who was involved in an ATV accident last week.

Kyleigh Rampley of Rome was driving the vehicle on May 26 when it went off the road in Cherokee County, according to a news release obtained by PEOPLE from the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA).

She was ejected from the 2017 Mahindra ATV after it ran over a wire on Cherokee County 102 and “rolled over,” the press release said.

The teenager was “severely injured” and taken to a local hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries, police said. An 8-year-old passenger was also injured. Both were unbuckled at the time of the accident.

Assistant county coroner Blake Madaris identified the eight-year-old as Rampley’s cousin, according to The Miami Herald. Madaris did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. Further information on the cousin’s condition is not clear.

During her year-long attendance at Pepperell Middle School in Lindale, where she recently graduated from 7th grade, Rampley was a member of the cross-country and soccer teams, according to her obituary.

The teen, who has spent most of her life in Alabama, “was full of energy and personality” and “made an impression on many at her new school in such a short time.”

“Her classmates and friends will remember her as goofy, kind, accepting, protective and, as one of her teachers put it, ‘unreserved Kyleigh,'” reads Rampley’s obituary. “Kyleigh was loved by many.”

According to her obituary, services for Rampley will be held on Sunday.

An investigation into the crash is still ongoing, the ALEA said.
