Highway Patrol car rammed by passing motorist

WYOMING — Two troopers suffered minor injuries when a Wyoming Highway Patrol vehicle was struck by a passing motorist yesterday afternoon on Interstate 25 near Douglas.

On May 9, at around 1:07pm, a Wyoming Highway Patrol vehicle was involved in a collision near milepost 129 on I-25. The Troopers were stopped on the shoulder investigating a prior crash when a southbound 2013 Dodge Challenger collided with the patrol car.

The driver of the Dodge lost control of his vehicle on a slush-covered covered roadway. Both troopers were inside their vehicle at the time of the crash and sustained minor injuries.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol would like to remind motorists to slow down during inclement road conditions and remember to move over for all emergency vehicles.
