Three-Year-Old Girl In “Serious Condition” After LeFlore County ATV Crash
LEFLORE COUNTY (KFSM) – A three-year-old girl is in serious condition after a LeFlore County ATV crash on Sunday afternoon (May 3), authorities say.
The crash took place on Oklahoma 63 in Whitesboro at 2:06 p.m., according to a crash report.
A three-year-old girl was sitting on the lap of a 38-year-old man identified as Brady Brewer on a stationary ATV in a gravel driveway when she “pushed the vehicle’s throttle to full speed, causing [the ATV] to accelerate and go through a barbed-wire fence,” police said.
Two other girls (both age 7) were also on the ATV at the time of the incident, according to a crash report. Brewer and the three girls were taken to the Choctaw Nation Health Care Center in Talihina, police said.
According to authorities, Brewer and the two seven-year-old girls were treated and released. The three-year-old girl was flown to Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa in serious condition with head, arm and trunk external injuries, police said.
The ATV involved in the crash is a 2008 Polaris Sportsman 500, the crash report states.
As of 4 p.m. on Monday (May 4), Oklahoma Highway Patrol said they did not have an update on the three-year-old girl’s status.
The report states Brewer’s condition at the time of the incident was “apparently normal,” and the case is still being investigated.
