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.

He was wearing his seat belt.
Altaye was taken by ground ambulance to Sheridan Memorial Hospital. He died on Sunday.
The Highway Patrol is investigating brake failure and driver hours of service violations as contributing factors in this crash.
The crash temporarily closed the highway, which reopened at 1:34 a.m. Sunday.
This marked the 145th highway fatality in Wyoming for 2015. There were 150 fatalities during this same time period in 2014.
