Wyoming Authorities Release Video of Truck Crash on Icy Road
The Wyoming Highway Patrol on Tuesday released video of a commercial truck crash, warning drivers that slick spots persist on highways across the state and urging them to use caution.
The undated video shows a commercial truck off the road. Evidently filmed by a dashboard camera inside a stopped patrol vehicle at the scene of the wreck, the footage shows another commercial truck approach at a high rate of speed.
The second truck tries to stop, but loses traction and slides into the first truck. The driver of the first truck jumps out of the cab and manages to get clear of his vehicle seconds before the collision.
It was unclear whether anyone was injured in the wreck. The video is called "Casper Crash" by the Patrol, indicating it occurred in the Casper area.
