Woman found unconscious in car on U.S. Highway 40

A woman was found unconscious in a car on the side of U.S. Highway 40 near Saddle Mountain Ranch on Saturday afternoon.

Miranda Brath, 22, of Grand Junction was found at about 1:40 p.m. near milepost 124. She was driving a 1997 Ford Aspire eastbound on U.S. 40 when she apparently drove off the right side of the road and struck a tree at low speed, the Colorado State Patrol reported. She suffered facial lacerations in the crash.

Brath, who was found unconscious and was transported to Yampa Valley Medical Center, told officials she felt ill before the crash.

Brath was treated at YVMC and released Saturday.

The State Patrol did not know how long Grath had been unconscious before help arrived.
