Casper, WY (August 31, 2021) – Emergency crews were requested at the scene of a motor vehicle accident in the Casper area that ended in injuries. At around 9:12 a.m., on August 30, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on US Highway 87.

Reports from authorities show that a collision blocked the northbound side of US Highway 87 during the morning hours. The incident prompted the Wyoming Highway Patrol and firefighters to close off the roadway for an extended time as they worked to clear the scene.

Emergency medical services responded to the site of the crash to render aid to victims. At least one person was transported to a local hospital for further care. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
