Pinedale, WY (August 20, 2021) – A rollover wreck on the evening of Wednesday, August 18, resulted in one fatality, according to a Wyoming Highway Patrol preliminary report.

Troopers said the driver, a 39-year-old man from Wyoming, was traveling eastbound on Highway 353 near mile marker 1 when he exited the south side of the roadway for unknown reasons and struck a delineator post.

At that point, the man’s truck crossed both lanes of travel, left the north side of the roadway, flipped, and rolled multiple times. EMS performed life-saving measures at the scene, but the man was pronounced dead before he could be transported to a hospital.

It’s unclear if any other vehicles or injured victims were involved. Troopers say the incident remains under investigation at this time.

Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim. Our thoughts are with any victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
