Fatal crash west of Wheatland claims life of 46-year-old man

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - A fatal crash west of Wheatland on WY-311 near milepost two claimed the life of a Wheatland resident, May 15. Gregory Taylor, 46, of Wheatland, was driving a 2002 Ford F-250 pickup truck traveling north on WY 311 when he failed to negotiate a left-hand curve in the highway. The Ford left the road to the east where it tripped and rolled. Taylor was wearing his seat belt, but still sustained fatal injuries on scene. Alcohol use and driver fatigue are being investigated as contributing factors in this crash that marked the 16th highway fatality in Wyoming for 2016. There were 46 highway fatalities in Wyoming during this same time period in 2015. #shortgo #news
