One Killed, Three Injured in Friday Crash West of Casper
A Wyoming resident was killed Friday morning in a head-on crash west of Casper on U.S. 20/26.
Trenton Huff, 23, died at the scene, according to a crash report from the Wyoming Highway Patrol. He was wearing his seatbelt.
Three others were injured, though the crash report does not identify them. The extent of their injuries is unknown.
Per the report, Huff was driving a Ford F-250 eastbound. At 10:37 a.m., near mile marker 42, a westbound Ford Excursion crossed the center line and entered the eastbound lane.
The Excursion hit the pickup truck head-on, in an offset manner. The Excursion spun counterclockwise and came to rest facing south in the westbound lane, while the Ford also spun counterclockwise before running off the road and rolling onto its roof.
Investigators are examining speed too fast for conditions, driver fatigue and driver inexperience as contributing factors in the crash, though the report does not specify which driver -- perhaps both -- may have been fatigued or inexperienced.
The roadway was wet, with snow and ice or frost also present at the time of the crash. Snow was falling, and skies were overcast.
