STONEWALL, Miss. (AP) — Authorities in Clarke County say a girl visiting her grandfather's farm while on spring break has been killed after being struck by a truck.

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

Officials say no charges are expected to be filed.

The Lamar School in Lauderdale County posted on Facebook that Alexandra attended first grade at the school.
