George Von Ogden
August 21, 2009
Wyoming Highway Patrol reports that Pinedale resident George Von Ogden was killed early Friday morning, August 21, in a roll-over accident on Sublette CR#144 (Ehman Lane).
According to the report, the accident occurred around 2:00 AM, approximately 1.39 miles north of US 191 in Sublette County, west of Pinedale. Von Ogden, 48, was driving a 1983 Dodge SUV northbound on County Road #144 when he failed to negotiate a left hand curve in the roadway. The vehicle went off the roadway on the right side at which time the driver over corrected the steering to the left. This maneuver caused the vehicle to come back onto the roadway going across the roadway before going off the road on the left side. When the vehicle entered the barrow ditch it rolled ½ time. Ogden was alone in the vehicle and was not wearing a seatbelt. He died at the scene. No other vehicles were involved in the accident.
Troopers investigating this crash believe alcohol use may have been a contributing factor.
