The Wyoming Highway Patrol says the accident occurred around 6:10 p.m. Friday on U.S. Highway 89 north of Thayne.

The patrol identified the victims as 43-year-old Michael Petrosine of Thayne and 25-year-old Tyler Keehn and 43-year-old Kelly Lish of Afton.

According to Sgt. Kyle McKay, Petrosine was driving a Chevrolet 3500 northbound when he crossed into the southbound lane and collided head-on with Keehn, who was driving a Ford F-250.

Both drivers and Lish, Keehn's passenger, died at the scene. None of them were wearing seat belts.
