Washington Man Killed in Crash Near Buffalo
Driver inexperience could be partly to blame for a one-vehicle crash east of Buffalo that claimed the life of a Washington man on Wednesday.
According to a release from the Wyoming Highway Patrol, around 4:50 p.m. Aug. 14, a 2006 Toyota Tacoma pulling a camper was traveling west on Interstate 90. The camper began to sway side to side, causing the driver to lose control. The truck and camper left the roadway and overturned.
The driver of the pickup, a 55-year-old Poulsbo, Washington, woman was transported to Johnson County Medical Hospital for injuries sustained in the crash. The 70-year-old male passenger, also from Poulsbo, Washington, succumbed to his injuries at the scene of the crash.
Both occupants were wearing seat belts.
That brings the death toll on Wyoming roads this year to 104, compared to 65 in 2018, 94 in 2017, and 73 in 2016.
