Park County, WY -

On Saturday, July 7, 2018, at 9:00 p.m., the Park County Sheriff’s 911 Dispatch Center received a report of a motor vehicle crash with injuries on Road XUX (Squaw Creek Road) in Crandall. A deputy was immediately dispatched as was an ambulance from Cody Regional Health and units from the Cody Fire Department. While responding additional information was received that the driver of the vehicle was deceased.

Upon arrival responding units did indeed find the driver of the two-seat side-by-side ATV, Maximillian Finney, age 14 from The Woodlands, Texas to be deceased. The investigation revealed that Finney's father, who owns two cabins on Road XUX had sent his son from one cabin to the other at approximately 8:00 p.m. to inform family members staying there that dinner was ready. At approximately 8:30 p.m. passersby discovered Finney pinned underneath the ATV approximately 1/4 mile west of the Crossbow Road (Squaw Creek Ranch Road).

Road XUX in this area is gravel surfaced. Evidence indicated that Finney was traveling west at a speed too fast for conditions when he crested a hill and began to slide. He then went off the left or south side of the road and caught the edge causing the vehicle to begin to slide sideways. The vehicle then tipped over landing on Finney. He was not wearing a helmet. Park County Coroner Tim Power ruled the cause of death to be massive head trauma.
