Court documents show Endrina Bracho, an illegal from Venezuela, was driving the wrong way at 70 miles per hour in a 40 miles per hour zone when she struck Wolfe’s parents’ Jeep head-on.

Bracho also does not have a driver’s license.

Wolfe, who had been on life support since the crash, passed away on March 6.

Wolfe’s father sustained a broken wrist and ribs in the crash, while his mom had a broken ankle and sternum.

Bracho, who had two children in her car at the time of the crash, has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the first degree, two counts of assault in the second degree, two counts of endangering a child in the first degree, and one count of operating a vehicle without a valid license.

There were no reports of injuries to the children, who were returned to the custody of their father.

Bracho had traveled quite a distance doing in the wrong direction before striking the Jeep Wolfe was a passenger in, according to Hazelwood Police Department Sgt. Scott Schnurbusch.

“1,700 feet is quite a big distance to travel at over 70 miles an hour on a 40-mile posted road. That’s a long way to travel in the wrong direction and not realize,” Schnurbusch said.

Bracho is currently in custody and awaiting trial. She’s being held on a $500,000 cash-only bond, with a bond reduction hearing set for April 8.
