Decatur County --  A teenage girl remains hospitalized in critical condition tonight after a weekend ATV crash that killed her friend.  

Thirteen-year olds Stephanie Rhodes and Trisha Stallnaker were trying to cross Highway 302 in Decatur County Saturday afternoon. Their ATV struck an SUV which then rolled over several times.

Rhodes, who was driving the ATV, died in an Alabama hospital. Stallnaker remains in a Tallahassee hospital.

The Georgia State Patrol says the crash was completely preventable. "The girls never should have been on public roads with a four wheeler that was not authorized to be used on the public roads, no helmets were involved," said Trooper Derek Johnson from the GSP Donalsonville post.  

The driver of the SUV along with her two passengers, including a three year old in a child seat, were wearing seat belts. They were treated and released from Bainbridge Memorial Hospital.
