1 Killed, 3 Injured in I-25 Crash Near Douglas
The Wyoming Highway Patrol has identified the driver of the Dodge pickup as 37-year-old Cheyenne resident Kelsey Baumgartner.
Trooper Shawncey Day says Howard was from Burns and died at the scene.
One person was killed and three others injured Monday afternoon after a pickup towing a livestock trailer hit a broken-down pickup and livestock trailer in Converse County, the Wyoming Highway Patrol says.
It happened around 3:39 p.m. at milepost 131 on Interstate 25, between Orin Junction and Douglas.
According to a fatality crash summary, a Dodge pickup was towing a gooseneck livestock trailer northbound when the driver hit a broken-down Chevrolet pickup with a bumper-pull livestock trailer that was parked in the right emergency lane.
The crash left 25-year-old Wyoming driver Brooke Howard, who was not properly buckled up, dead.
Three others were also injured in the crash but the summary did not say to what extent, and a call to the patrol seeking more information was not immediately returned.
Driver inattention and driver fatigue/asleep are listed as possible contributing factors.
This is the third traffic fatality on I-25 between Chugwater and Douglas this month.
