A Cheyenne teenager was killed Thursday in a single-vehicle wreck that left four more injured.


CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A 15-year-old Cheyenne resident was killed Thursday afternoon in a single-vehicle crash that saw a 2001 Chevy truck roll over near Johnson Junior High School. Five teenagers were in the vehicle at the time.

Cheyenne police were dispatched to the scene of the crash, an alleyway behind the school, at approximately 1:25 p.m. When officers arrived on scene, they found one of the passengers had died.

The driver and three other passengers also sustained injuries and were transported by ambulance to the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center for treatment. Due to the severity of the crash, the Cheyenne Police Department Major Crash Unit was called to take over the investigation.

Preliminary details indicate the truck was traveling east down the alley at a high speed while swerving back and forth. The driver hit an uneven area of the road, lost control and rolled the vehicle.

This case remains under investigation by the Cheyenne Police Department.
