Wyoming HP Identifies Driver Killed Near Afton on Sunday
A 22-year-old Jackson man is dead following a crash north of Afton Sunday afternoon.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol says John Koerber was driving a 2002 Ford Focus northbound on US 89 when he lost control on the icy road. Koerber's Focus then crossed into the oncoming lane and hit a 2007 GMC Sierra pulling an empty horse trailer.
Despite wearing his seatbelt, Koerber died at the scene.
The Sierra's driver, Corey Christensen, was wearing his seatbelt. His passenger, Maryanne Christensen, was also wearing her seatbelt. Both were taken to Star Valley Medical Center for their injuries.
Speed on the part of Koerber is being investigated as a possible contributing factor.
