Martinsville, VA -- The Henry County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a 5-year-old girl.

She was transported to Memorial Hospital of Martinsville and Henry County by a family member where she was pronounced dead Friday night.

The girl was involved in an accident on Lees Ridge Rd. just before 7:45 p.m.

After interviewing several people, investigators say several children were playing outside when they tried to move a wooden pole lying on the ground. The pole, which was too heavy for the children to move, fell and hit the girl on the head.

No other children were injured.

The child will be transported to a medical examiner as the Sheriff's Department continues to investigate.
