The Miami County Sheriff's Office identified the girl killed in the Wednesday afternoon crash in Covington as Michelle Burns.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1hrbBNP ) reports the tractor was pulling a trailer filled with animal feed and some hand tools when the driver, Michelle's 43-year-old mother Tammy Burns, apparently lost control on a down incline.

Also injured were 20-year-old Lisa Warner and her children, 18-month-old Darrin Warner and 1-month-old Kelly Warner. Lisa Warner is Tammy Burns' daughter.

Darrin Warner was in serious condition, and Kelly Warner was in fair condition. The conditions of the others weren't available.
