Holmes and a 7-year-old girl were riding a four-wheeler in a pasture at 931 E. Flonacher Road when they lost control of the vehicle and it flipped over, Hicks said in a Wednesday news release.
Holmes was transported to a hospital and later pronounced dead, Hicks said.
The girl was treated on scene for minor injuries, Hicks said.
Deputies are still investigating the accident, Hicks said.
