UPDATE: From the Martin family, by Mary Hamilton
“Our deepest and most sincere condolences to the Hanks family on the loss of their daughter, mother and sister Skye. You are in our daily prayers.
My nephew, Steven Tyler Martin, was the critically injured person in the accident Thursday night, May 5, 2016 on Highway 95 in Parker. Arizona. His girlfriend, Skye Christine was killed.
Steven has been flown to Phoenix and has suffered multiple injuries. He is in critical condition. He has several bones that have been fractured, some of the bones have penetrated the skin and required surgery. He underwent surgery yesterday for his right elbow, and his left shoulder. He has a broken collar bone and a broken foot. The compound fractures are quite serious and this whole process is evolving to determine the extent of his injuries. He has sustained multiple fractures in his lower spine. He is currently sedated and intubated in the trauma ICU. He does respond to stimuli. We do not have any information on the extent of any neurological or internal injuries.
I will continue to post updates as they are available.
Thank you in advance for prayers, kind thoughts for those affected by this horrific tragedy.”
