An 8-year-old girl died Saturday morning after a bicycle-related accident in a Frisco park near Lone Star High School.

Frisco fire and police units responded to the accident, which took place at Northwest Community Park, shortly after 9 a.m. The girl, identified by the Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office as Kaylee Kampschroeder of Krugerville, was taken to Children's Medical Center of Dallas by CareFlite helicopter and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The medical examiner ruled Kaylee's death as accidental, caused by blunt force trauma from her fall, which damaged internal organs.

Authorities said Kaylee fell off her bike while riding on a trail in the park; she was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. Online records indicate Kaylee had experience participating in a mountain bike championship event.

Pam Jackson, president of the Dallas Off-Road Bicycle Association, said she met Kaylee at a Christmas light bike ride in Plano in December 2011. Jackson rode with a group that included Kaylee's family, noting that the 8-year-old shared a passion for cycling with her parents.

"It is hard to lose any member of our mountain bike community, but losing a child hurts even more. Speaking for myself, I am heartbroken for Kerry, Michelle [Kaylee's father and mother] and the rest of their family," she said.. "From calls and comments made, I am sure the rest of the Dallas mountain biking community mourns the loss of Kaylee. My hearts and prayers go out to the Kampschroeder family and Kaylee's friends."

Jackson added that Kaylee's parents indicated their daughter had planned on competing in DORBA races later this year.

Kaylee attended elementary school in Aubrey, where friends encouraged others to wear a pink ribbon in her honor. Pink ribbons were also tied to multiple Northwest signs.

Northwest Community Park opened in October with 5 miles of hike-and-bike trails. The trails, designed for mountain bikes but also open to walkers and runners, were built and are maintained by DORBA, Shawnee Trail Cycling Club and Frisco Cycling Club.

The park's trails are separated into three loops, with the longest loop, described as "beginner friendly," measuring 2.5 miles in length. Two shorter loops include tighter turns and larger hills.

Northwest's trails were closed in the days following the accident, though a makeshift memorial was created where people placed flowers throughout the week. A prayer vigil was held Wednesday afternoon followed by a remembrance bike ride in Kaylee's honor.

OMG. You can't be serious with this Mike. Judging by your logic should we also ban hiking in Alaska because numerous people have died while in the wilderness?

For a guy who proclaims to have a "PhD" and be an expert in mathematics your arguments are certainly extremely weak, almost child like in nature. If you were "smart" you would have compared the probability of dieing from mountain biking versus other outdoor activities such as hiking, 4 wheel driving or horse back riding and cited your sources of data.

You are certainly getting desperate with your arguments. Maybe father time is catching up with you?

In June 2010, Michael J. Vandeman was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon against a mountain biker.

http://police.berkeley.edu/crimealer...52810-37NC.htm

http://www.berkeleyside.com/2010/06/...lting-cyclist/

He was subsequently found guilty of exhibiting a deadly weapon and battery.

Vandeman continues to claim he is innocent.

Default WHOOPS! Eight-Year-Old Girl Dies in Frisco Mountain Bike Accident (TX)

Posting news of death and injury to strangers, who have done you no harm, with the whimsical word "WHOOPS" is creepy and disturbing. Characterizing a child's death with the word "whoops" is just...awful.

What are you talking about?! Mountain bikers do us and our wildlife enormous harm. In this case, the adults are obviously at fault, for introducing a nave young child to an extreme sport. I guarantee that no one told her she could DIE doing it.

with the whimsical word "WHOOPS" is creepy and disturbing. Characterizing a child's death with the word "whoops" is just...awful.


That's what one says when one has or witnesses an accident. It got your attention! So it's worthwhile. If you are more concerned about word usage than the poor girls DEATH, you are truly sick!

It got attention alright Vandeman. The attention you managed to gather was around your mental instability. Foolish man.

And secondly the attention you gathered has been extremely limited to one very obscure group on google. Out of a population of 7 billion people the article has been read by 7 people (or 0.0000001%). Poor logic, poor marketing......You have not added any value in posting crap like this.

Yet another poorly thought out response - I am not the one who celebrates deaths like you nor do I posts the word "whoops" before an article about a child dying. You may think you are smart posting crap like this but you only achieve one thing - to highlight to the rest of the world you are irrational and mentally ill. Sicko.......

If you don't think your views are socially unacceptable - post a video on youtube in response to this story and start your commentary with the word "whoops" in it. I suspect you don't have the balls to do this!!!!!
