A Crash near Togwotee pass, has claimed the lives of two individuals.

According to Wyoming Highway Patrol Lt. Tom Adams, the collision happened between a semi truck and a Yukon Denali carrying ten people, during the afternoon hours Thursday, on highway 26, 25-miles west of Dubois.

Lt. Adams says that it is believed that the Yukon, carrying ten people, was going too fast for road conditions, which may have caused the collision with the semi truck.

“The driver lost control on the icy roads,” says Lt. Adams.  ”The vehicle went into a slide, slid into the westbound lane, where the semi was traveling.  The driver of the semi attempted to leave the roadway, but the high snow pack on the sides prevented him from doing so, and he struck into the driver’s side [of the Yukon.]”

The Wyoming Highway patrol is reporting that a four-year-old girl and a 56-year-old woman, whose names have not been released, died as a result of the crash.

Several other occupants of the Yukon were transported, by ground ambulance and air, to various hospitals in Wyoming and Montana.

The occupants of the semi-truck are said not to have been injured.
