Highway Patrol Cites Brake Failure In Fatal Crash
A man from Detroit died from his injuries in a single-vehicle crash in northcentral Wyoming on Saturday, according to a news release from the Wyoming Highway Patrol.
Sana A. Altaye, 28, was driving a commercial tractor-trailer east on a downhill section of U.S. Highway 14 about seven miles southwest of Dayton, according to the news release from Patrol Sgt. David Wagener.
At 9:55 p.m., the truck experienced brake failure and crossed the center line. It left the highway to the north, collided with a guardrail, tripped, and rolled on its roof.
Altaye had called 911 just before the crash occurring advising he had lost his brakes.
