Casper resident among 3 dead in Monday US-20 crash


CASPER, Wyo. — Three people died in a two-vehicle collision at milepost 180 on US 20/26/87 east of Casper on Monday.

A 2002 Ford F-150 was headed west and crossed the center line, colliding head-on with a 2018 Ford F-150.

The driver of the 2002 Ford has been identified as 34-year-old Casper resident Kristofer Counts. Counts was not wearing a seatbelt and succumbed to his injuries at the crash scene, as did the juvenile passenger who was wearing their seatbelt.

The driver of the 2018 Ford has been identified as 28-year-old Glenrock resident Aaron Henson. It is unknown whether Henson was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. He was transported to Banner Wyoming Medical Center, where he later succumbed to injuries.

Driver inattention and fatigue on the part of Counts are being investigated as possible contributing factors.
