CASPER, Wyo. — The driver of a semi truck died and one person was injured after a crash involving three vehicles on Interstate 80 in Sweetwater County on Tuesday, Aug. 2, according to a preliminary crash report from the Wyoming Highway Patrol.
The crash occurred near milepost 123 along I-80 and temporarily closed eastbound lanes as firefighters and other first responders attended to the crash. WHP troopers were notified of the crash at around 12:14 p.m. Aug. 2, the preliminary crash report said.
A Kenworth semi truck hauling a trailer was heading westbound on I-80 in the left-hand lane. The semi left its lane and sideswiped a Chevrolet Silverado, according to the WHP’s preliminary report. That caused the Silverado to go off the road and roll over multiple times before coming to a rest upright.
