Sharon ATV Accident Victim Passes

SHARON (September 16) – An ATV accident last week in Sharon has claimed the life of a 13-year-old and left another Sharon teen critically injured. 

Destiny Brewer, 13, of Sharon died in a Memphis hospital Thursday as a result of injuries sustained in an ATV accident occurring the evening of Monday, September 13. Another 13-year-old is in critical condition at a Memphis hospital.

According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol around 6:30 p.m., Monday, September 13, two 13-year-old girls were riding an ATV on Gaylord Extended in Sharon when they collided with a 2007 Chevy Silverado, driven by Doug Sims, 54, of Martin. Sims was traveling on Adams Road near Sidonia. The ATV reportedly went airborne. Sims was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured in the crash.

The two teenagers were airlifted from the scene by separate helicopters and transported to Memphis hospitals.

    She was my baby cousin. She was an amazing and down to earth you’d ever meet🥺🙏🏼. Not a day goes by where I don’t think about her. That night I got the call my first thoughts was that it was her baby sister (Autumn Brewer), so my first instinct was to try and get in contact with her (Destiny) not knowing along it was her that was in the accident. My heart dropped when I found out it was Destiny. All I have to stay is hug your family real close bc you’d never know when it’s gonna be their last time here. #Forever13🥺🕊
