GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - A young woman from Pennsylvania who was in Montana with her family for a Make-A-Wish trip for her autistic brother has died in an all-terrain vehicle crash.

Glacier County Coroner Tom Seifert tells the Great Falls Tribune (http://bit.ly/p0yjc4) the victim of the crash late Tuesday afternoon was 18-year-old Carmen C. Rizzi of Zelienople (zee-lee-en-OH'-pul), Pa.

Officials say the teen was driving the ATV in the town of Babb just east of Glacier National Park when she failed to negotiate a right hand curve, went off the road and landed in a pile of rocks. The ATV rolled several times.

Rizzi was taken to a hospital in Browning, where she died of her injuries.
