Man transported to WMC following ATV accident along Wyoming 220

(Wyoming) - At approximately 10:57 am this morning Wyoming Highway Patrol Troopers responded to an accident along Wyoming Highway 220 at mile post 94 for an ATV accident. Lieutenant Chris Schell with the Wyoming Highway Patrol reported that an employee with the Natrona County Weed and Pest was spraying weeds on a four wheeler and went to cross Government Bridge when he collided with a metal de-lineator post that was sticking out of the ground. The post lodged in the front axle of the ATV and pitched the male off of the machine and on to the ground. Wyoming Life Flight was called in to aid the male and he was transported to WMC for serious injuries. His condition is unknown at this time and the highway was temporally blocked to traffic as life flight landed. Lt. Schell reported that the driver was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
