Miss Abrianna High, age 13, of Rockmart Georgia, passed away on March 27, 2021.
There will be a public viewing on Monday, April 5, 2021, from noon until 6 p.m. at Wright Memorial Mortuary in Rome.
Yet another Polk County youth has died, this time following an ATV accident at Tolbert Town Road near Mann Road on Saturday afternoon.
Abrianna High, a sixth-grade student at Rockmart Middle School, lost her life in an ATV accident, says Polk County Coroner Norman Smith.
Abrianna, 13, was a passenger on a 2013 Polaris driven by a licensed 16-year-old girl who later was treated at Floyd Medical Center, according to the Georgia State Patrol.
The GSP report also shows:
“The ATV was traveling eastbound on Tolbert Town Road. The driver was negotiating a curve too fast for conditions and failed to maintain lane. The left tires traveled off the left side of the road and the driver lost control of the vehicle. The ATV overturned onto its right side in the roadway. The passenger was ejected as a result of the overturned vehicle.”
The community already has endured a series of accidents and other incidents that have claimed six young lives. It started with a Jan. 21 collision that claimed two sisters, ages 16 and 12, and continued with the death of a star Cedartown football player.
