2 killed, 2 injured in Wyoming crash

WHEATLAND, Wyo. — A fatal crash south of Wheatland, Wyoming claimed the lives of two Wyoming residents on July 30.

Wyoming Highway Patrol troopers were called to the scene of a one-vehicle rollover at about 7:50 a.m. on July 30.

Tuesday morning a Buick Century was travelling north on Interstate 25 when the vehicle drifted into the median between the north and south bridge decks of an interchange with Highway 34. The Buick overturned after it entered the median, coming to a rest on Highway 34.

The driver and front passenger, Shane Moser and Ashley Wall of Casper, Wyoming, were both transported to Wheatland Hospital for injuries sustained in the crash. Both were wearing their seatbelts.

The other passengers in the vehicle, Andrea Garner of Lusk, Wyoming and David Cunningham of Casper, Wyoming, were in the back of the Buick during the crash. Neither were wearing seatbelts at the time, and both succumbed to their injuries at the scene of the crash.

Driver fatigue is being investigated as a possible contributing factor.

This is the 95th and 96th fatalities on Wyoming’s roadways in 2019 compared to 61 in 2018, 83 in 2017, and 53 in 2016 to date.
