Avalanche Buries Car on Wyoming’s Teton Pass; No Injuries
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities say a sheriff's deputy rescued a driver after a car was buried in an avalanche on Teton Pass in northwest Wyoming.
The car was caught in the slide Wednesday evening, and the pass was closed in both directions. No injuries were reported.
Stephanie Harsha, a spokeswoman for the Wyoming Department of Transportation, says the slide was likely triggered naturally. It was about 4 feet deep and about 30 feet wide.
Crews prepared for avalanche mitigation and the highway had reopened as of Thursday morning.
