Accident Claims Wyoming Man

fatal-300A single vehicle rollover crash on Sunday resulted in the death of a Wright, Wyoming man. The crash occurred about 26 miles east of Kaycee, Wyoming. A pickup driven by 60 year old Chris Christensen was westbound before it initially drifted off of the right side of the road. Investigators say Christensen over-corrected back onto the roadway traveling over the center line of the road and off of the left side of the roadway where he then over-corrected the steering hard to the right. At that point the truck slid sideways back onto the road. During the slide, the pickup tripped and rolled. During the rollover, Christensen was ejected and sustained fatal injuries as he was not wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash. Alcohol use is being investigated as the contributing factor in the 128th highway fatality in Wyoming for 2014.
