Cheyenne police are recommending that the driver involved in a Nov. 5, 2021 crash that left a McCormick Junior High School student dead be charged.

Police say 13-year-old Makaili "Mak" Evans was on his way to school when a woman driving a Ford Escape eastbound on Western Hills Boulevard hit him in the crosswalk in front of McCormick.

Evans was taken to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center with critical injuries where he was later pronounced dead.

The driver, whose name is being withheld pending formal charges, remained on the scene to assist officers with their investigation.

"In December 2021, following a complete and thorough investigation, an affidavit of probable cause was forwarded to the Laramie County District Attorney," police said in an update Tuesday afternoon.

Public Information Officer Alex Farkas couldn't speak about toxicology results or say what charges the department is recommending, but she did say "charges have not been filed yet."

"We won't be releasing information contained in the closed document," Farkas told KGAB Radio. "Pending the district attorney's charging decision, the information in the affidavit will become public record."

When asked Tuesday if she would be pressing charges in the case, District Attorney Leigh Anne Grant Manlove declined to comment.
