Gillette Man Killed in Crash By Driver Running From Police
At the request of the Campbell County Sheriff's Office, the Wyoming Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal incident that occurred on June 29th around 9:30 p.m. on Fairview Road approximately five miles southeast of Gillette, Wyoming.
Grant C. Gleason, a 26 year old resident of Recluse, Wyoming, was running from deputies with the Campbell County Sheriff's Office, in a one-ton dually pickup truck after a traffic stop on Union Chapel Road. As Gleason continued on Fairview Road, 70 year old Gillette resident, George K. Bryant, pulled off to the edge of the road in a half-ton pickup to get out of the way of Gleason.
The two vehicles collided, killing Bryant at the scene. Gleason was seriously injured in the crash and was taken to Campbell County Memorial Hospital.
Charges against Gleason are pending. This investigation is still in a preliminary stage and more information will be released once it becomes available.
