Heavy fog possible factor in Grand Teton National Park single vehicle rollover, fatality

(Jackson, Wyo.) – A recent resident of Jackson died in a single vehicle rollover Wednesday, July 16, in Grand Teton National Park. Bernardo Bravo, 45, formerly of the Phoenix, Arizona area, apparently drove off the Teton Park Road and rolled his 2002 Buick sedan down a steep embankment just a mile north of the park’s Moose Entrance Station sometime in the early morning hours. Bravo was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.

The crash was discovered when a passerby at 4:55 a.m. reported a tire on the highway, which was confirmed by a GTNP maintenance worker, who discovered the crashed vehicle.

Circumstances surrounding this fatal vehicle accident are yet to be determined. Multiple reports of a thick fog lying across this area during the early morning hours were provided by passersby and park staff; the foggy conditions may have been a contributing factor.

Bravo had been staying at the Climber’s Ranch in Grand Teton National Park.
