A Lylerly, Ga., woman killed on Sunday afternoon when her ATV flipped has been identified.

Christy Price, 35, died around 2 p.m. when she drove up a steep embankment on a trail in the Chattahoochee National Forest and her four-wheeler flipped, said Whitfield County Coroner Bobbie Dixon.

Price wasn't wearing a helmet and the four-wheeler likely crushed her, Dixon said, but the coroner's office is waiting on results from her autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Price was with a group of seven or eight ATV riders on Sunday, Dixon said. The ATV trails are open to riders in the forest.

The Whitfield County Sheriff's Office is investigating Price's death.
