One person was killed and three others were injured in a three-vehicle crash northwest of Cokeville Tuesday afternoon, the Wyoming Highway Patrol says.

The crash occurred around 2:50 p.m. at Border Junction in the far western part of Lincoln County, less than a quarter mile from the Idaho state line.

According to a fatality crash summary, an SUV was southbound on Wyoming 89 when the driver reportedly failed to stop at the stop sign at U.S. 30, attempted to turn eastbound onto U.S. 30, and was T-boned by a westbound semi.

The impact caused the SUV to spin counter-clockwise, fully ejecting the right rear passenger, and the semi to overturn onto its side and skid into an eastbound semi.

The summary identified 24-year-old Wyoming resident Steffany Bolivar Velasquez as the passenger killed in the crash.

This is the 35th reported fatality on Wyoming's highways in 2023 compared to 21 in 2022, 25 in 2021, 19 in 2020, and 39 in 2019 to date.

2022's Deadliest Wyoming County by Traffic Deaths

While car crashes can occur anywhere, some roads in Wyoming are more dangerous than others.

According to Wyoming Highway Patrol data, there were 117 fatal crashes in the Cowboy State in 2022 resulting in 133 deaths.

Of those fatal crashes, the majority (13.68%) occurred in Laramie County -- two in January, one in February, one in March, two in April, one in June, two in July, three in August, two in September, one in November, and one in December.

Sweetwater County saw the second most fatal crashes last year, 12, while Fremont and Lincoln counties each saw 10.

Albany and Park counties each recorded eight, and Campbell, Converse, and Natrona counties each tallied seven.

The deadliest 2022 crash in Laramie County took place on June 17 when two semis collided on Interstate 80 east of Cheyenne and immediately became engulfed in flames killing both drivers and a passenger.

Laramie County also saw two fatal crashes involving motorcyclists, two fatal crashes involving juveniles, and a fatal crash involving a pedestrian last year.

Below is the Wyoming Highway Patrol narrative of every fatal crash that occurred in Laramie County in 2022.
