Douglas, WY (September 1, 2021) – Emergency crews were requested at the scene of an accident in the Douglas area that sent at least one person to a local hospital with injuries. At around 7:46 a.m., on August 31, calls for assistance came in surrounding a crash on Wyoming State Highway 59.

Reports from the Wyoming Department of Transportation show that a collision between vehicles caused significant delays on the highway near mile marker 43. The incident prompted crews to close off the travel lanes of the roadway between Douglas and Reno Junction as they worked to clear the scene. EMS tended to victims briefly on-site before transporting those in need of further care to area hospitals. At this time, the cause of the crash is under investigation. 

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

Being hurt in a motor vehicle accident can have a devastating impact on a person’s life. In many instances, injured parties are not able to return to work immediately following the accident. Instead, they are hospitalized for several days or even weeks and have to go through months of therapy and rehabilitation. Although we hope that everyone is able to recover from their injuries, this is not always true.
