Highway Patrol Identifies Man Who Died in A Crash on I-25 Early Tuesday Morning

Trevor T. Trujillo, Townsquare Media

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says 33 year old Oscar Valdez-Rivera of Farmington, New Mexico was killed when the pickup he was riding in rolled on I-25 north of Cheyenne at about 4 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Wyoming Highway Patrol Sgt. Stephen Townsend says the pickup was pulling a 20-foot trailer at the time of the accident. He says for reasons unknown the combination went off the roadway into the median at which time the driver, identified as Fredy Cervantez-Rivera of Albuquerque, NM, overcorrected the steering back towards the roadway. He then over corrected the steering a second time which caused the combination to roll 1/2 time coming to rest in the roadway blocking both southbound lanes of travel. The trailer with equipment came to rest on top of the overturned pickup.

Townsend says Valdez-Rivera was declared dead at the scene. He adds Cervantez-Rivera and the other passengers in the pickup were transported to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.

Townsend says members of the Wyoming Highway Patrol’s Crash Investigation Team responded to the scene. He says upon completion of the crash investigation all information will be provided to the Laramie County District Attorney’s Office. They will make recommendations as to the filing of any criminal charges.
