Police are searching for a teen accused of destroying evidence in a Sequoyah County, Okla., all-terrain vehicle accident case that left another teen severely injured.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Kyle Brannon, who is facing charges of destroying evidence and obstruction in an ATV accident that put Christian Mayberry, 16, in a hospital bed.
Mayberry was riding southbound on County Road 4750, five miles south of Muldrow, when he ran off the road and into a ditch last September. He was ejected 12 feet from his Polaris Ranger ATV, according to a report from the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Department.
A court document states Mayberry was left in the ditch in Muldrow for hours. Official documents state Brannon cleaned up the wreck by picking up an ice chest and beer. They also state he moved Mayberry.
Kim Mayberry, Christian's mother, said her son has undergone intensive care since the incident.
The official report also states Mayberry was found lying face up with blood coming out of his ears. Someone at the crash site couldn't get him to wake up, and someone poured beer into his face in an attempt to wake him up.
On Saturday (April 26) in Muldrow at 8 a.m., a 5K race will be held to raise money for Mayberry's recovery. The race will be held at the Veterans of Foreign Wars building.
