SAGINAW COUNTY, Mich. (WJRT) - A 48-year-old woman died after she was thrown from an off-road vehicle in a rural area of Saginaw County on Monday evening.

Colleen Kelbey was a passenger on the side-by-side ATV driving through a private field in the 11800 block of Gasper Road in Albee Township. Her 47-year-old husband was driving and a 6-year-old boy was riding with them, according to the Saginaw County Sheriff’s Office.

Emergency crews pronounced Kelbey dead the scene. Her husband and the 6-year-old boy were not injured.
