Kenny Lyle

Kenny Lyle was killed yesterday after an accident on a Webbers Falls farm where a forklift he was starting ran over him and dragged him for some distance, according to emergency workers.

The farm, which is in city limits, is owned by the Sheffield family, and Lyle was a handyman of sorts, taking care of the lawn and other projects, according to family friends. Muskogee County EMS took him to Muskogee’s Saint Francis Hospital, where he later was pronounced dead from his injuries.

Webbers Falls police reported that Lyle attempted to start the forklift, which then lurched forward, ran him over and dragged him some ways before it was stopped.

It’s unknown where Lyle lived, though family friends believe he may be from Vian.
