17September 2020

Holly Wright, 64, of Winthrop passed away at the scene Wednesday after driving her pickup truck into the Kennebec Valley YMCA structure in Manchester, according to authorities.

No other injuries were reported. Andy Molloy/Kennebec Journal MANCHESTER– A 64-year-old Winthrop female died Wednesday afternoon when her pickup truck diverted off the roadway and crashed into the Kennebec Valley YMCA building in Manchester. Holly A. Wright was noticable dead at the scene, according to information from the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies stated they believed Wright may have experienced a medical issue, leading to the one-vehicle accident, reported at 1:16 p.m.

Wright was driving a 2002 Chevrolet southbound on Granite Hill Roadway when it left the roadway and hit the building. The accident damaged one wall and some of the building’s siding.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of the departed,” said Ranae L’Italien, president of the Kennebec Valley YMCA, for which the Manchester facility is a satellite operation.

L’Italien said because the building is running at reduced hours due to the coronavirus pandemic, there were no members and only a little number of workers at the center when the accident took place.

The building was closed Thursday so YMCA authorities could evaluate the damage, which was expected to reopen Friday for routine hours– 8 a.m. to noon.

L’Italien stated the structure sustained minimal damage, none of which affected its structural stability. She said she was dealing with the YMCA’s insurer to estimate the expense to repair the damage.

Along with local authorities and deputies, the Winthrop Ambulance Service and Manchester and Hallowell Fire departments responded to the mishap.
