Highway Patrol asks for help piecing together fatal crash near Elk Mountain

WYOMING – The Wyoming Highway Patrol is asking the public for assistance in a fatal collision investigation. The crash occurred around 12:09am on September 15 near milepost 239 on Interstate 80.

There is evidence to suggest an additional semi truck was involved in the incident and the truck did not stay at scene the scene of the crash. The semi truck traveled through the debris field only seconds after the collision.
