RAWLINS, Wyo. (Casper (Wyo.) Star-Tribune) — At least three people have died in Wyoming and dozens have been injured in a pileup of more than 100 pileup amid blowing snow that closed part of Interstate 80.

The other pileup injured seven people, including one person who officials said is in critical condition.

A 200-mile stretch of westbound I-80 is still closed between the cities Laramie to Rock Springs.
