Green River teen dies in crash


A 17-year-old Green River High School student died in a crash on Flaming Gorge Way Monday morning

According to the Wyoming Highway Patrol, Maicy Braden was driving a 2002 Chrysler 300 at the intersection of Flaming Gorge Way and Uinta Drive.

Braden was traveling south and attempted to drive through a red light when her vehicle was struck by a 2006 Volvo commercial truck driving west on Flaming Gorge Way, driven by 38-year-old Travis Holcombe, of Wisconsin.

Another vehicle, a 2001 Ford van driven by Walter Jensen, 79, of West Jordan, Utah, was also struck after the initial collision.

Braden was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and was transported to Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County, where she later died as a result of her injuries. Jensen and Holcombe were wearing seatbelts and were uninjured in the crash.

A cellphone and candlelight vigil will take place Thursday, hosted by the GRHS senior class at the high school gym at 7:30 p.m. Students will also dress in camouflage during the day.
