SOLDIER SUMMIT, Wasatch County — Utah State University Eastern soccer player Lauren Bradshaw was killed in a two-vehicle crash near Soldier Summit in Wasatch County on Saturday night.

“On Oct. 22, 2022, we tragically lost an incredible member of our women’s soccer team, Lauren Bradshaw, following an automobile accident,” athletics director Jess Brinkerhoff said in a statement posted on social media. “On behalf of the entire USU Eastern athletics department, our love and condolences to Lauren’s family, friends, teammates and coaches.
