Has anyone addressed the time of the accident? If so, I missed it and I apologize. But, it has come to my attention that this may have happened in the wee morning hours, in which case they wouldn't have been found until much later anyway. Word is Mike had been injured in a crash that night and Matt was trying to take him to help. That helps to explain their condition, when they were found. This is not frst hand info, so take it with a grain of salt.
I'm not real sure on the time but the pictures in the newspaper where law enforcement were checking the Atv appeared to be at dusk or dawn

ASH - he/she whichever you may be -your vocabulary shows a major lack of knowledge if the only way you can express yourself over a very tragic ACCIDENT is through such foul language. Your should scald your mouth out!

They were found around 1:00P.M. the person(s) that found them said they were in or near a nearby barn and heard Mike screaming/ crying for help. The pictures in the paper were taken after Mike had been flown to The Med.

Actually Mike was found next to a house that is being remodeled, no one lives in it, and the person who actually heard the cries for help and found them was Tim Bracken.

I'm not a child, you don't need to yell to get your point across. I was going by what was in the paper and also what a relative told me. I find it funny that this Tim guy didn't want his name in the paper, yet you all have no problem putting his name on Topix.
oh really

That's because Tim
Is one of the biggest trespassers. Always has been. Not very trustworthy at all. Fact

hate to hear someone died because of something so stupid. Reads like he should've had his own property to ride on.....

I have no reasion to block my name. My Brother Michael Gray and great family friend Tim Bracken were both there. my brother is not a lier and would not lie about something like this. who ever you are who said those things needs God in your life. My brother had got off work early and was at tims shop to change his fuel filter in his truck bc i was babysitting his little girl. Michael is the one who stayed by Mr. Wilkies side the whole time. He did a heroic thing as well as tim did. if it wasn't for my brother being there no one would have heard him cry for help. with that being said i hope the people that are saying these aweful things about my brother and tim, find jesus because one day you may need help and no one will be in site to help u!!! I will be Praying for you!!!
Jonesboro is nuts

I keep seeing where people of all ages, kids included, keep getting killed on 4 wheelers, people riding them in the streets and other places it's illegal for them to be but you idiots just keep it up. I was taking my buddy home in Candlewood tonight, after dark, and had to brake to keep from hitting a 4-wheeler with 5 or 6 little kids hanging on to it. Barely. You all must carry a lot of life insurance on your kids. Or you're just to drunk and drugged out to give a damn. Either way, you reek.

This is a horrible tragedy and my heart goes out to Matt and Mike's families. I have to say that this type of activity and abuse of four wheelers is very common around Jonesboro and especially out there, but the people living out there on 757 and surrounding are as nice and kind to you as you are to them. As far as Michael and Tim they are both fine young men who would give you the shirts off of their backs. The Bracken family has been in that area for probably 50 plus years and old man Bracken, Earl and Tim plus the other neighbors are all great people for the most part, there is one old mean hateful nasty man out there who lives to stir up trouble but rumor has it he may be moving soon. As far as I know everyone out there just mind their business and would thank you to mind yours and be fair and considerate to one another. This thread should be about done. I am praying Mike heals well and recovers completely, this isn't the first tragic wreck on there, we still have another young man who still needs alot of surgery from a motorcycle accident on 780, so let's all pray for these people and go about our own lives.

The motorcycle wreck on 780 was caused by his own stupidity and it wasn't the first time. I heard he's only one lick in the head from being in a wheelchair drooling on himself but he never learns.

I'm Matts brother. There is so much false hurtful nonsense on here! I pray to God my sister in law never sees this. I thank the few of u who posted kind thoughts and prayers. Some facts...the property they were leaving was not posted and has not been in years. He came into it from the back side and hit the unseen cable on his way out. Matt had never been there before in all our years riding this area. It was a tragic accident. It was not the four Wheelers fault. The day after the accident the land owner painted the cable and poles pink and purple and pushed all the brush away from the poles so u could see them. With the sun beaming down I still had a very hard time seeing the cable with its new paint job. Again thanks for the prayers for our family. It has been a horrible 15 months with losing my mom, then my dad, and now my brother. Its tough

It hurts deeply that some of you have no clue or understanding. The boys left out at 915AM I know because I was the last person to talk to them. I'm Matts sister in law and watch Michaels kids and live on the same land as Matt. It is horrible what had happened. Those who rode with us knew Matt was very cautious on a for Wheeler. Always has he was the one to tell us to calm down we are gonna get hurt. there was a unknown reason they were on the for Wheeler together and may never know. We are very thankful for Michael Gray and Tim. God placed them there that day for a reason. And we honestly don't care what other peoples opinions are of them they are and will always be heaven sent in our eyes. We as a family aren't talking about the details of the accident to anyone because its none of your business. The people who we want to know will know and it won't be on here. what you need to do is hold your loved ones close because life can be gone before you know it. This family knows first hand first our mom, then our dad and now our brother. The pain my poor husband is going through can't be measured. So tell the people you love you love them and get right with God cause he will call you home at any moment.

I'm not concerned about anyone involved in this. This is an open forum, where anyone can say what they want. Like I said, if you can't handle it, go somewhere else. I didn't know him, but I know people who know him, and I also know that he had been drinking. That's not innocent fun, it's called being careless and his actions almost cost another person his life. I guess the truth hurts, and people like you don't want to admit it. As you can tell, I have no sympathy for people who choose to do stupid things. And in case you didn't notice, I'm not the only one talking about things you don't want to read.
If you are not concerned about anyone involved and didnt know him then how do you know if he was drinking? I knew Matt and am very close to the family and a lot of his other friends and this is the first time I have heard anything about alcohol being involved at all. Maybe you should check your facts.

Matt and Michael left around 915am from our property I talked to then and saw them leave. They were going out to unwind from a long night at work since they both work 3rd shift.
