The second of three free Cheyenne Frontier Days Pancake Breakfasts drew long lines at the Cheyenne Depot Plaza on Wednesday morning.

The breakfasts are presented by the Cheyenne Kiwanis Club in conjunction with Cheyenne Frontier Days. The third and final pancake breakfast of 2023 will be offered on Friday morning from 7-9 am at the plaza. Lisa Trimble of the Cheyenne Kiwanis put the final tally of breakfasts served on Wednesday morning at 7,566. Because Wednesday is Cheyenne Day at Frontier Days, the Wednesday morning breakfasts tend to draw the largest crowds of the breakfasts most years.

Besides being a Frontier Days tradition, the breakfasts have a practical application. They are a drill to practice the logistics of feeding large numbers of people in case of an emergency, such as a major flood or a tornado.

2022's Deadliest Wyoming County by Traffic Deaths

While car crashes can occur anywhere, some roads in Wyoming are more dangerous than others.

According to Wyoming Highway Patrol data, there were 117 fatal crashes in the Cowboy State in 2022 resulting in 133 deaths.

Of those fatal crashes, the majority (13.68%) occurred in Laramie County -- two in January, one in February, one in March, two in April, one in June, two in July, three in August, two in September, one in November, and one in December.

Sweetwater County saw the second most fatal crashes last year, 12, while Fremont and Lincoln counties each saw 10.

Albany and Park counties each recorded eight, and Campbell, Converse, and Natrona counties each tallied seven.

The deadliest 2022 crash in Laramie County took place on June 17 when two semis collided on Interstate 80 east of Cheyenne and immediately became engulfed in flames killing both drivers and a passenger.

Laramie County also saw two fatal crashes involving motorcyclists, two fatal crashes involving juveniles, and a fatal crash involving a pedestrian last year.

Below is the Wyoming Highway Patrol narrative of every fatal crash that occurred in Laramie County in 2022.
