Details Released in Fatal Cheyenne Crash Involving Pedestrian
The Wyoming Highway Patrol has released details about a fatal pedestrian crash that left one man dead in Cheyenne Wednesday night.
Sgt. Jeremy Beck says the crash occurred around 6:15 p.m. near the Outlaw Saloon on the South Greeley Highway.
"A 2013 Dodge van was traveling northbound on U.S. Highway 85 (when) the driver observed a pedestrian in dark clothing start to cross the highway in front of his vehicle," said Beck.
"The driver attempted to avoid colliding with the pedestrian by driving into another lane, (but) the pedestrian failed to stop walking across the highway and collided with the vehicle," he added.
Beck says there's no evidence to suggest the male pedestrian, whose name won't be released until next of kin has been notified, tried to commit suicide.
He says the driver is "fully cooperating with law enforcement and the investigation" and no charges have been filed at this time.
