Just before six pm on US 20/26 west of Casper the Wyoming Highway Patrol reports that 57 yr-old, Sammie Hill, of Riverton,  lost control of the truck she was driving.  Patrol Sgt. Steven Townsend says the vehicle slid off the roadway and rolled crushing the cab…

“the cab of the truck was collapsed  onto the occupants when it rolled over,  numerous times.  I actually don’t know how many times it rolled over.”

Hill died in the crash.  Her passenger,  55 year old, Trudy Redman, also of Riverton, was hospitalized at Wyoming Medical Center.

Then, shortly after six pm, another pickup, this one traveling north on I-25, about thirty miles east of Casper, also rolled killing a passenger.

Townsend says , 51 year old, Thomas Clay, of Casper was riding in that north bound pickup truck that slid and then rolled coming to rest in the southbound lane.  He was killed in the accident.

The Ford f-350 was driven by, 26 year old, Eric Clay.  The driver and second passenger, 48 year old, Tami Clay, survived the crash.  All three were transported to Wyoming Medical Center.  Thomas Clay died at the hospital. Both passengers were not wearing seatbelts and were ejected during the crash.  The driver, who was wearing his seat belt, was treated and released.

Sargeant Townsend says the hazardous road conditions caused both incidents.  “It’s the time of year when drivers are going to encounter those icey and snowpacked roadways.   I just want to remind everybody to reduce those speeds and your following distance and slow down. Take your time.
