Autumn Clark describes her 13-year-old daughter with tears in her eyes.

“Lybertyee loved god, and she told us all the time, that we needed Jesus or the big man upstairs,” she said as a brief smile emerged. “She is a very bright, smart, beautiful, and loving young lady.”

After an ATV accident at this Wilderness Park in Bloomfield, Autumn has found out how much her daughter meant to others.

“It’s amazing, I can’t even explain. I knew she was loved and everybody loved and liked her, but I never imagined like this much, you know.”

Lybertee was driving the ATV with her 8-year-old brother, Tyson, on the back.

“They were going a little too fast, and he was telling her to slow down and instead of pushing the brake, she turned the wheel and they went down the hill and rolled.”

Tyson broke his femur in the accident and just got out of the hospital. Lybertee was killed.

Sitting on her couch with her son beside her, Autumn is grateful to have one of her children tonight. But her heart is still broken.

“Be sure you tell em that you love em, because I would give anything to tell her I love her and give her that last hug.”
