A father and daughter involved in an all-terrain vehicle wreck earlier this week have died.
Kenneth Galmore, 39, and his daughter, Daija, 12, were visiting cousins on County Road 309 when they decided to take an ATV out for a spin, according to family members. Who was driving the ATV when it crashed head-on into a tree is unknown.
Galmore was unresponsive when paramedics arrived although Daija had some consciousness. Both suffered brain injuries. The two were taking to Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi and then quickly flown out by medical helicopters. Galmore was taken to The Med in Memphis and Daija was taken to Le Boehner’s children’s hospital, also in Memphis. The father and daughter were placed on life support.
Kenneth Galmore’s funeral has been set for 10:30 a.m. Saturday at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Batesville, with burial following in New Hope Cemetery. Serenity-Martin Funeral Home of Oxford is in charge of arrangements.
