Cheyenne, WY – Car Crash on I-80 near MM 359 Ends in Injuries

Cheyenne, WY (July 16, 2021) – Emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed at the scene of an accident with injuries on Wednesday evening. At around 4:16 p.m., on July 14, calls for assistance were received regarding a crash on Interstate 80.

Reports provided by authorities show that a collision between vehicles blocked all of the westbound lanes on Interstate 80 near milepost 359 during the early evening hours. Wyoming Highway Patrol and firefighters responded to the scene of the crash and immediately secured the area. Emergency medical services rendered aid to victims on-site briefly before transporting those in need of further care to area hospitals. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents in Wyoming

Motor vehicle accidents are often overwhelming for those involved. When victims are injured in accidents, the consequences are greatly increased. In many instances, victims who sustain injuries in accidents require emergency medical attention. Victims who are hospitalized with traumatic brain injuries, internal organ damage, severe burns, and even compound fractures often require long-term care as well. Having to go through months of therapy and rehabilitation is extremely painful and comes at a significant cost. Regrettably, there is no promise of a full recovery. Instead, thousands of victims are forced out of work indefinitely and left with permanently disabling conditions.
