Jackson, WY (August 20, 2021) – Authorities in the Jackson area, close to the Idaho border, were requested at the scene of a traffic-related incident that ended in injuries on Friday morning, August 20.

At around 9:00 a.m., emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Highway 22 near milepost 1.

Reports provided by the Wyoming Department of Transportation show that a collision blocked the right lanes of the roadway as emergency crews worked to remove vehicles and debris from the roadway. 

EMS tended to injured victims on-site before transporting those in need of further care to local hospitals. At this time, the cause of the crash remains under investigation by officers with the Sheridan Police Department.

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