CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Gov. Mark Gordon has ordered both the U.S. and State of Wyoming flags to be flown at half-staff statewide on Sunday, Jan. 15 in honor and memory of Tyeler Harris, an emergency medical technician from Saratoga.

On Dec. 21, Harris was responding to an accident on Interstate 80 during a winter storm when he was fatally struck by a semi truck. Services for Harris will be held in Riverton on Sunday.

“Jennie and I extend our deepest condolences to Tyeler’s family and friends, and we hold his wife and children in our prayers,” Gordon said. “We can never thank Tyeler enough for his sacrifice, but we can honor and remember him.”
