A Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper was injured Thursday afternoon when her patrol car was hit by a commercial truck south of Wheatland.

Sgt. Jeremy Beck says the incident occurred at 1:08 p.m. around milepost 66 on Interstate 25.

Beck says the trooper, who had stopped on the shoulder to help a stranded motorist, was sitting in her car with her seat belt on when the collision happened.

The trooper was taken to Platte County Memorial Hospital with minor injuries. The driver of the truck wasn't injured.

The crash caused the northbound lanes of I-25 to be closed for about three-and-a-half hours.
