Trucker crash on I-80 proves fatal for Washington woman

WYOMING – A Washington woman died last weekend after a crash of a semi on Interstate 80 in Sweetwater County.

Wyoming Highway Patrol troopers were dispatched to I-80 at milepost 146 for a motor vehicle crash on December 15 at approximately 2:30pm.

A 2018 Volvo semi-tractor and trailer was traveling eastbound on Interstate 80. The Volvo drifted off the left side of the roadway and into the median. The Volvo collided with a box beam guardrail and overturned.

The driver of the Volvo has been identified as 52-year-old Morton, Washington resident Christine Keller. Keller was wearing her seatbelt but succumbed to her injuries at the scene of the crash. A passenger in the truck was transported to the Sweetwater County Memorial Hospital with injuries.

This is the 110th fatality on Wyoming’s highways in 2018 compared to 121 in 2017, 112 in 2016, and 144 in 2015 to date.
