GILLETTE, Wyo. — A Thursday morning vehicle crash has closed Highway 50 from Gillette to Pine Tree Junction, according to the Wyoming Department of Transportation. 

The crash is reported to have occurred on Highway 50 near milepost 12 at 10:33 a.m., WYDOT says.

Witness accounts state three semi-tractors and two passenger vehicles were involved in the crash, though WYDOT has yet to release official details.

The crash had previously closed Highway 387 from Pine Tree Junction to Midwest and Edgerton; however, the latest data available through WYDOT’s 511 application show the highway has been reopened, as has Highway 192 from Highway 387 to Linch. 

The estimated opening time for Highway 50 is unknown, per WYDOT.
